Perfect for shorter critical care courses, in-service training, and CCRN® certification review, Priorities in Critical Care Nursing, 8th Edition uses the latest, most authoritative research to help your students identify patient priorities in order to safely and expertly manage patient care in high acuity, progressive, and critical care settings. The book’s succinct coverage of all core critical care nursing topics spans the areas of medications, patient safety, patient education, problem identification, and interprofessional collaborative management. Students will learn how to integrate the technology of critical care with the physiological needs and psychosocial concerns of patients and families to provide the highest-quality care. In addition to thoroughly revised case studies, integration of interprofessional collaborative practice, streamlined features, and new multimedia resources, this new edition also includes a unique focus on interprofessional patient problems to help students learn to speak a consistent language of patient problems and work successfully as part of an interprofessional critical care team.
