This edition features two new chapters on how to individualize care plans and how to adapt them to special patient needs. These "cookbook" chapters will assist the novice or student nurse in creating care plans, while the care plans for specific disorders will serve the practicing nurse who needs relevant clinical information.Additional care plans are available on a special website. * Contains more than 200 nursing care plans, including 54 nursing diagnosis care plansmore than any other care plan book on the market. * Provides priority assessment information in the beginning of the book. * Defines disorders and treatments clearly; each care plan includes related factors, defining characteristics, and assessment parameters. * Patient care outcomes are integrated with specific, measurable, objective goals. * Strictly differentiates elements of the nursing process by separating interventions for each nursing diagnosis from the assessment to allow students to apply the process daily, and distinctly marks collaborative versus independent interventions by using different icons, making it easier for students to identify nursing roles in each type of care. * Includes physical, psychosocial, teaching, and referral interventions, and some procedural interventions for the novice nurse. * Contains both nursing and medical diagnoses in one book. * Organizes care plans by body system for fast retrieval of information; each individual care plan and its corresponding page are listed on the inside front and back covers for quick reference.
