Get all the knowledge you need to provide effective care for adults as they age. Grounded in the core competencies recommended by the AACN in collaboration with the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing,Ebersole & Hess Toward Healthy Aging, 9th Edition is the only comprehensive text to address all aspects of gerontological nursing care. The new ninth edition has been extensively revised and updated and now includes shorter, more streamlined chapters and pedagogical features to facilitate learning, covering the areas of safety and ethical considerations, genetics, communication with the patient and caregiver, promoting health in persons with conditions commonly occurring in later-life world-wide addressing loss and palliative care and much more. This new edition considers the experience of aging as a universal experience and the nurse's role in the reduction of health disparities and inequities as a member of the global community. Plus, it contains a variety of new learning features that focus the readers attention on applying research and thinking critically in providing care to aging adults across the care continuum.
