Pocket Guide to Psychiatric Nursing Summary


Pocket Guide to Psychiatric Nursing by Gail Wiscarz Stuart

"Pocket Guide to Psychiatric Nursing, Fifth Edition", is a practical clinical reference for both psychiatric nurses and nursing students. It presents key clinical information in a concise format, with many tables, boxes, and illustrations. The "Pocket Guide" is divided into two parts. Part I, Principles of Psychiatric Nursing Care, consists of 8 chapters and is designed to focus on the basic concepts of psychiatric nursing, regardless of the patient care need or the practice setting. Part II, Applying Principles in Nursing Practice, comprises the major content of the book. These 13 chapters consider nursing approaches to patients with specific nursing care problems, and discuss psychopharmacology and somatic therapies. As with the previous editions, the fifth edition is derived from the textbook "Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing" by Stuart and Laraia.
