Critical Care Nursing Book Review:

This book is organized into five parts, the first two of which cover areas applicable to all critical care patients, including the patient's and family's experience, education, pain management, ethical and legal issues, and the rewards and challenges of critical care nursing. The third part addresses specific populations, including pediatric patients, pregnant women, older adults, and postanesthesia patients, as well as interfacility transport. The balance of the book is arranged by body systems and concludes with multisystem problems. This is the seventh edition of a text first published in 1973 and last published in 1994. The purpose is to present current, comprehensive, and practical information built on a holistic perspective of care in which the patient is the core of nursing practice. This book meets a need for educating students and nurses in the critical care environment. The editors' objective of providing a framework for focusing on patient responses in the critical care environment is met. This book is intended for students in critical care, educators, and clinicians. This edition is also tailored to meet the needs of patients. The editors are excellent authorities in critical care nursing. All three are practitioners, and one is both practitioner and educator. The contributors and reviewers are critical care experts. The illustrations are used best to understand critical care technology. The graphics used for anatomy, physiology, and patient assessment add to the usefulness of the text. The references are pertinent and current, but certain specialty content would need to be updated by the reader (e.g., medication protocols for CHF). The use of color in the textis managed carefully to guide and not overpower the reader. The 1997 ACLS Guidelines are in Appendix 1. The Answer Key to Study Questions appears in Appendix 2. Anatomy and physiology, patient assessment and clinical management, nursing research, collaborative plans of care, teaching, and home care issues are some of the innovations presented. One strength of book is how it addresses the changes associated with aging and the needs of the older adult. Aging concerns are covered in one chapter and are highlighted throughout the text. This edition provides current information that makes the previous edition out of date. I would recommend this text for beginning critical care nurses and for undergraduate nursing students for its coverage of advanced pathophysiological concepts.

The Future of Nursing Book Review:

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

Patient Safety and Quality Book Review:

"Nurses play a vital role in improving the safety and quality of patient car -- not only in the hospital or ambulatory treatment facility, but also of community-based care and the care performed by family members. Nurses need know what proven techniques and interventions they can use to enhance patient outcomes. To address this need, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), with additional funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has prepared this comprehensive, 1,400-page, handbook for nurses on patient safety and quality -- Patient Safety and Quality: An Evidence-Based Handbook for Nurses. (AHRQ Publication No. 08-0043)."--Online AHRQ blurb, http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/nurseshdbk.
