DescriptionContents

In the second edition of this most successful nursing text, the authors have concentrated on developing the nursing model of care, especially in relation to a patient's specific needs. Adulthood - the concept and perception of it - is highlighted and Henderson's model is considered as applied to this theme. A series of patient histories are included with self-testing questions and guidelines for suitable answers which will stimulate discussion and encourage self-directed learning. Another new development is the insertion of 'Evaluation of Care' and suggested Record of Progress Sheets.
