ORGANIZATION

The Clinical Companion provides a quick reference for standards of practice, diagnostic studies, DSM-IV-TR diagnoses, legal issues, and standard precautions. The nursing process section reviews assessment, North American Nursing Diagnosis Association (NANDA). diagnoses, and planning through using Nursing Outcome Classifications. Implementation is based on Nursing Intervention Classifications. Psychoeducation is stressed as a critical part of nursing intervention, as knowledge empowers people to make informed decisions regarding their health status, plan for maintaining wellness, and illness care choices. Various types of therapies are highlighted under nursing interventions. Psychotropic medications are presented clearly and concisely to provide the student with a quick reference while in the clinical setting.

Client-nurse experiences come to life in the Clinical Applications section, which covers 24 of the most common problematic behaviors. These behaviors appear in alphabetical order for easy access. Each behavior adheres to the following format:

  • Assessment cues
  • Interventions and rationales
