Description : This volume of ARNR addresses the wide-range of chronic illnesses that nurses encounter in their work. The format is the same as previous volumes, with each chapter presenting a careful and systematic review all available research on specific topics. Important issues in chronic issues are reflected throughout, such as a prolonged and uncertain course of illness, lack of easy resolution, rarity of complete cure, frequent unknown etiology, and multiple risk factors. The book ends with a milestone chapter by Susan Donaldson which overviews significant breakthroughs in nursing research over the past 40 years. Volume 18 introduces a new dimension to the Review. In order to better reflect the increasing specialization of nursing, a nurse expert in a particular specialty area has been selected to edit each volume. Dr. Joyce Fitzpatrick continues to oversee the Review as Series Editor. The majority of each Review will be devoted to the focus area, with one or two chapters addressing important research issues that are of interest to all researchers.

Description : This volume sets the stage for understanding the evolution and importance of nursing science in the field by providing a brief historical overview of the tobacco epidemic and emerging science, describing changing trends in tobacco use, reviewing health risks of smoking and benefits of quitting, reviewing concepts in nicotine addiction and evidence-based recommendations for tobacco dependence treatment. Also highlighted are nursing science efforts and leadership in addressing two barriers to mounting programs of nursing research in tobacco control: the lack of nursing education and training in tobacco control and the limited research funding and mentorship. Finally, the contributors to this volume address the issue of smoking in the profession as it influences nurses' health, interventions with patients, and, potentially, scholarship efforts.

Description : Providing optimal care for heart failure patients is a complex challenge that requires cooperation and coordination across multiple disciplines. Now, you can apply the successful techniques pioneered at the Cleveland Clinic, which are carefully explored and explained in this text. Drs. McCarthy and Young draw on their experience to show how an interdisciplinary team works together to: arrive at a proper diagnosis initiate medical therapy make decisions regarding the best use of percutaneous therapies, surgical therapies, electrical therapies, and the use of mechanical circulatory support devices and transplantation. Throughout the book, they present the most updated evidence for both drug trials and surgical trials. They emphasize the benefits of performing the most complete surgery that is practical, then continuing medical therapy. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of treatment, but the authors recognize that the best way to manage an individual patient is often to adapt a variety of different therapies. They state their opinions clearly, identifying which part of care is science and which is art. Heart Failure: A Combined Medical and Surgical Approach is a true collaboration that helps you identify the most effective strategies – operative interventions, pacing and ICD treatment, new diagnostic tools, and pharmacotherapeutic developments – and implement them for your patients.

Description : One of the most challenging aspects of the current healthcare system, especially for nurses, is cultural diversity across a variety of societies. Nurses, caregivers, and other practitioners must be equipped and aware of their patients’ cultural background in order to respond appropriately and sensitively while providing the proper care. Clearly the techniques and beliefs within cultures is highly diverse, requiring those providing care to possess knowledge that allows them to combine global and cultural practices into their day-to-day occupation. This consist of not only learning cultural differences and similarities, but examining nursing throughout other parts of the world, and the health problems being faced in different geographical settings. This volume is intended to provide nurses, physicians, specialists, and providers with the information needed to provide capable care and treatment to individuals of diverse cultures. Each chapter author was selected for their interest and knowledge of transcultural and social research. The content of this volume provides a look at classic contributions to the field, up-to-date research, and evaluates the impact of diverse cultures on issues that may affect nursing and health care, such as: Key Topics: Leininger’s Culture Care Diversity and Universality The Current State of Transcultural Nursing Transcultural Mental Health Nursing Culture and Consent in Clinical Care Obesity Among African Immigrant Populations Cultural Factors Influencing Suicidal Thoughts and Behaviors
