Nursing Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: Developing Knowledge, Competence and Best Practice

 Nursing, Oncology  Comments Off on Nursing Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: Developing Knowledge, Competence and Best Practice
Nov 052018
 

This book describes and explains how caring for adolescents and young adults with cancer (AYA) has developed into what is now a recognized and distinct field of nursing practice. It captures current innovative nursing practices and interventions which have developed over the past 25 years across the globe and are supported by research and evidence achieved in many European and international oncology settings. By outlining and describing educational needs of the AYA cancer nursing profession, this book supports its education and professional development for the nursing profession and serves to develop and disseminate nurses’ competencies worldwide.
During the last decade, AYA have gained increased attention in healthcare. Today, it is recognized that AYA with cancer have distinct needs that are different to both children and older adults. Young people are in a unique developmental and transitional phase of their lives; thus, their treatment, perspectives and experiences have been addressed in research and the body of knowledge is growing accordingly. Some books are available that describe AYA cancer care, service delivery and aspects of age appropriate care but this volume will be the first to focus on how nurses contribute to AYA cancer care in practice. It will appeal to the AYA clinical nurses in cancer care, as well as to multidisciplinary healthcare professionals and healthcare professionals who support formal nursing education programmes, training and development in practice.

Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing

 Nursing, Psychiatry  Comments Off on Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing
Oct 042018
 


Named a 2013 Doody’s Core Title!
There are few new books to direct PMH-APRN treatment options…Now, this book provides the path to integration of treatment options for the holistic care of psychiatric client by PMH-APRNs.”–Doody’s Medical Reviews
“This text is a wonderful compilation of information that is needed within current advanced practice psychiatric mental health nursing. The chapters are informative, have excellent references and provide up to the minute information that is grounded in evidence-based practices.”–Barbara Jones Warren, PhD, RN, CNS-BC, PMH, FAAN
Professor, Clinical Nursing
Director, Psychiatric Nursing Specialty
National Institutes of Health/American Nurses Association Ethnic/Racial Minority Fellow
The Ohio State College of Nursing
This groundbreaking core text fills a void in nursing literature by integrating psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into advanced practice nursing. It is organized around psychiatric “syndromes” rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain current even after the publication of the DSM-5. The book provides clear and relevant treatment options in the form of decision trees with additional explanatory narratives. These decision trees enable practitioners to distinguish “normal” patients from those who require more customized therapeutic interventions. This holistic text integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine interventions. While providing comprehensive information on theory and practice, it simplifies complex aspects of treatment with clarity and provides the depth of content appropriate to support sound clinical reasoning required in advanced practice.
The book responds to the current backlash against overmedication in psychiatry. It also fulfills the upcoming requirements by APNA and ISPN that advanced practice psychiatric nurses must have skills in psychotherapy. Additionally, the text focuses on treatment issues across the life span and highlights pertinent clinical differences from the adult population through pediatric pointers and aging alerts. Advanced Practice Psychiatric Nursing reflects the extensive practice and educational experience of editors and contributors from the United States, Canada, and Scotland, all of whom are expert APNs.

Key Features: 

  • Organized around psychiatric “syndromes,” rather than DSM diagnoses, so it will remain relevant after the DSM-5 is published
  • Integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy. psychopharmacology, and CAM therapies
  • Provides the much-needed content on psychotherapy newly required for all psychiatric advanced practice nurses (APNA & ISPN White Papers)
  • Supports clinical decision skills through thoughtfully designed, easy-to-follow decision trees

ICONS highlight life span clinical management differences through Pediatric Pointers and Aging Alerts

Sep 252018
 

Veronica Burton’s first experience of depression came as a teenager. Following a ten year remission, during which she gained her general nursing qualification and completed her Special and Intensive Nursing of the Newborn course, work-related events precipitated a depressive relapse that has lasted to the present day. Since her retirement on medical grounds, she has campaigned against prejudice by nurses toward other nurses – including mental health nurses – who need psychological support of any kind. This book recounts the author’s experiences of major depression, hospital admissions and treatments including medication, Ect and ‘talking treatments’. It discusses the care given by medical and nursing staff and social and medical prejudices against those with psychiatric illnesses from a medical practitioner’s perspective.
