Book Description

Geropsychiatric and Mental Health Nursing; 2nd Edition (PDF) addresses the knowledge and skills necessary in the assessment and nursing care of older adults experiencing common late-life mental health and psychiatric problems. This textbook features experts in gerontological nursing and geropsychiatric fields and provides essential information for advanced practice and professional nurses; as well as graduate and undergraduate nursing students. The 2nd Edition has been completely revised and updated to include crucial areas like assessment; diagnosis; psychopharmacology; and behavioral management strategies in the nursing care of older adults. New to this second edition are case studies in each chapter in addition to discussion questions. This new edition also presents the work of the Geropsychiatric Nursing Collaborative (GPNC) in its entirety. The focus of the GPNC is to improve the education of nurses who care for elders suffering from depression; dementia; and other mental health disorders. The collaborative effort enhances extant competencies for all levels of nursing education; focusing on older adults with mental health/illness concerns. Shared in the Appendix are the competency statements developed for basic; graduate; post-graduate; and continuing education nursing programs.
