Description : Matteson & McConnell's Gerontological Nursing, 3rd Edition provides comprehensive, research-based information on nursing care of older adults. Beginning with the basics, the text uses a systems approach to describe the aging process from wellness to illness. It also describes physiological and psychological aspects of aging in detail, as well as assessment and practice in all settings using the nursing process. Each chapter incorporates a research and theory-based approach to the aging process. Content is comprehensive and focuses on caring for the older adult. The text examines the differences between normal aging conditions and clinical problems/conditions. Competencies and Roles in Gerontological Nursing section focuses on the process that nurses, especially clinical nurse specialists, use to impact gerontological nursing care. Nursing care plans provide the practitioner with nursing care scenarios applied to clinical practice. Expanded content on functional assessment, including addressing communication issues, both verbal and non-verbal, alerts the reader to vital issues that may affect the patient's plan of care. Color insert visually complements material on the integumentary section as it illustrates some of the major integumentary conditions affecting the gerontologic population. Reflections boxes written by experts across different nursing fields share personal experiences related to the chapters' content. Toward Better Health boxes provide key considerations for promoting healthy lifestyles. Assessment boxes emphasize specific physical tests and observations to make when assessing a patient. Age-Related Changes boxes detail the ways in which particular body systems are affected by the aging process. New chapters on End of Life Care, Evidence-Based Practice, and Assisted Living Care give the reader a more comprehensive look at gerontological nursing care.

Description : With the appearance of a textbook as comprehensive as this one, it is clear that the field of geriatrics is coming of age. The broad scope of these volumes shapes a substantial answer to the question, "What is geriatrics and why should we be interested in it?" As I see it, there are at least five reasons. First, the scientific or intellectual reason: gerontology is the study of aging from the biologic, psychological, and social perspectives. There is increasing interest in the fascinating insights into the biologic mechanisms of aging, errors in protein synthesis, DNA repair mechanisms, alterations of the neuroendocrine system, changes in the immune system, genetic controls, and somatic mutations. Second, the demographic reason: this is the century of old age. There has been a 26-year gain in the average life expectancy. This gain compares with that acquired from 3,000 years B.C. (the Bronze Age) to the year 1900, which was about 29 years. Therefore, in one century, there has been a gain in the average life expectancy almost equal to 5,000 previous years of human history. In 1830, one of three newborn infants survived beyond 60 years of age.
