  • Presents a definition, a list of activities, a publication facts line, and references for each intervention.
  • Provides 34 brand-new interventions that address important topics such as defibrillator management, infant nutrition, toddler safety, and wound care: burns.
  • Includes 77 substantively-revised interventions that supply the most up-to-date information on a wide variety of interventions, including chemotherapy management, hypnosis, radiation therapy management, exercise therapy, and shock prevention.
  • Supplies updated and expanded lists of core interventions for 45 specialties.
  • Each intervention now includes a publication facts line that indicates the timeline for development and revision of the intervention.
