Be prepared to meet the growing demand for nurses with the knowledge and skills to provide quality care to older adults. Mary Ann Anderson's easy-to-understand writing and positive outlook continue to enliven every page of this popular resource! Completely updated and fully revised throughout, this 5th edition features coverage of the field's hottest topics, including a new chapter on transitions and new coverage of gerotranscendence. There are also new interactive exercises for students online at DavisPlus that make learning and studying easier. This title examines how to help older adults manage dramatic life changes such as the death of a spouse with a new chapter on transitions. It introduces psychological and physiological theories of aging with new coverage of gerotranscendence in the chapter on "Holistic Caring", and applies these theories throughout the book. It delivers a new in-depth section on legal liability. It features new interactive student exercises on DavisPlus that engage students with a broad range of learning styles. It includes new information on Beer's criteria and chronopharmacology, new functional assessment content, current discussions of advanced directives, more information on the physical condition of people who are near death, and updated statistics and government initiatives. It discusses Progressively Lowered Stress Threshold (PLST) as a means of assisting in the management of negative behaviors in older adults. It makes critical points about the strength and adaptability of many older adults through Myths of Aging. It helps students imagine themselves in the nurse's role with "Point of Interest" and "Critically Examine the Following" exercises. It integrates Patient/Resident Teaching throughout Section Two. It engages readers with a full-color design and dynamic photography.
