Edited by Judith A. Paice, PhD, RN, FAAN
Series edited by Betty R. Ferrell, RN, PhD, MA, FAAN, FPCN®, CHPN®
The third volume in the HPNA Palliative Nursing Manuals series, Physical Aspects of Care: Nutritional, Dermatologic, Neurologic, and Other Symptoms, provides an overview of the principles of symptom assessment and management for symptoms including: fatigue, anorexia and cachexia, artificial nutrition and hydration, urinary tract disorders, lymphedema, skin disorders such as pressure ulcers, wounds, fistulas, and stomas, pruritus, fever, sweats, neurological disorders, anxiety and depression, and insomnia. Plentiful tables, figures, and practical tools such as assessment instruments, pharmacology tables, and patient teaching points make these volumes useful resources for nurses.
The second edition offers the full support you need to provide the most effective medication management and therapeutic decisions. This text is unique, not only as a comprehensive overview of major issues in geriatric pharmacotherapy and a core textbook for students, but as a resource for all healthcare professionals who treat elderly patients.
