Based on contemporary curricula and feedback from students and instructors, this Seventh Edition has been thoroughly reorganized, revised, and updated, including six new chapters and a greater emphasis on evidence-based practice. Coverage includes brand-new or fully revised chapters on nursing values, attitudes, and self-awareness; the interview and assessment process; inpatient care settings; community/home settings; forensic psychiatric nursing; suicide and suicidal behavior; somatic therapies; and clients with medical illnesses. More than thirty new case vignettes with critical thinking questions encourage students to apply key concepts to practice. Plus, new illustrations, photographs, and special features help different types of learners understand symptoms, interventions, biologic mechanisms, and the characteristics and needs of distinct clients.
A companion Website includes an NCLEX alternate item format tutorial, a Spanish-English audio glossary, psychotropic drug monographs, free journal articles, NCLEX-style chapter review questions, and Clinical Simulation case studies.
