Main description

A unique "mentor in a pocket" handbook covering one of the most emotionally-trying experiences nurses face

From the co-director of Johns Hopkins University's neuropsychiatry clinic and senior faculty member at the Copper Ridge Institute comes the first pocket-sized reference for generalist nurses on care for patients with dementia, one of the most emotionally-trying disorders they will face in clinical practice.

Part of McGraw-Hill's Nurse to Nurse series, this title includes PDA download of the entire text, vignettes, nursing alerts that provide just-in-time information on complex or particularly important aspects of patient care, and Therapeutic Dialogue Boxes that provide nurses with specific communication solutions for both patients and their families. Coated flex-binding repels stains.

The new Nurse to Nurse series is specifically designed to simulate the teaching experience nurses learn best from: trusted mentors carefully explaining what they must do in specific clinical situtions. Written in a consistent, single-author voice, this series brings the wisdom and experience of some of the foremost experts to non-specialist nurses in clinical care.
