Gerontological Nursing Summary


Gerontological Nursing by Mickey Stanley

Retaining its practical, clinically oriented approach, the 3rd edition covers a wide range of topics and issues necessary to deal with the older patient, in a succinct format that can be used in a variety of courses covering gerontological nursing. The book introduces the concept of ""successful aging"" - - the ability to maintain a low risk of disease and disease-related disability, high mental and physical function, and an active engagement in life. Successful aging, the use of the classifications of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention, and the concept of health promotion are the organizing frameworks for such pertinent topics as end-of-life and palliative care, dementia care, and new care delivery options.
