Synopsis:
The first book to encompass adult-gerontology practice guidelines for primary care, this comprehensive resource is designed as a text and reference for health care practitioners specializing as Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioners. It provides current national practice guidelines for delivering high quality primary health care to adult, older adult, and pregnant patients in the outpatient setting. The book delivers an entirely new section that focuses on the older adult person, including a chapter describing the major effects of aging on each body system. For quick and easy access, practice guidelines are organized primarily by body system, disorders listed alphabetically within each body system, and each disorder presented in a consistent format throughout. With an emphasis on history taking, the physical exam, and key features of the aging population, each of the 246 disorder guidelines include definition, incidence, pathogenesis, predisposing factors, common complaints, other signs and symptoms, subjective data, physical exam, diagnostic tests, differential diagnoses, plan of care, health promotion including dietary recommendations, follow-up guidelines, and tips for consultation/referral. Particularly useful features include "Practice Pointers" highlighting crucial information for each disorder, bold- faced and italicized "Alerts", and Clinical Pearls from experienced practitioners. The book also describes 19 procedures commonly used within the office or clinic setting. More than 138 patient teaching sheets are included in printed form (perforated for ease of use) and digital format for customizing and printing. These include important information for patients about safety and medications. Appendices feature normal lab values and dietary guidelines. Key Features: Focuses specifically on the adult, older adult, and pregnant patient populations Delivers consistent presentation of 246 disorders by body system for ease of access St
