Help your students gain the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in medical-surgical nursing with this leading textbook! Lewis's Medical-Surgical Nursing, 12th Edition uses a conversational writing style, a focus on nursing concepts and clinical trends, evidence-based content, and basic pathophysiology review to provide the solid foundation required in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Comprehensive chapters cover topics including nursing management and collaboration, health promotion, acute interventions, and ambulatory care. Summary tables and boxes make it easy to find essential information, and a building-block approach makes even the most complex concepts simple to grasp. In addition to three new chapters, this edition includes a stronger focus on the nursing process, clinical judgment, and preparation for the Next-Generation NCLEX® Examination.

    • Content written and reviewed by leading experts in the field ensures that information is comprehensive, current, and clinically accurate.
    • Interprofessional care is addressed in special Interprofessional Care sections and Interprofessional Care tables.
    • Bridge to the NCLEX® Examination review questions reinforce key content and include both standard and alternate item format questions to help you prepare for the NCLEX exam.

    • Coverage of gerontology and chronic illness is addressed in a separate chapter and highlighted in special gerontologic tables.
    • Pathophysiology maps use flowcharts to outline complex concepts related to diseases, making them easier to understand.
    • Focused Assessment boxes provide brief checklists for a practical "assessment on the run" or bedside approach to assessment, and can be used to evaluate the status of previously identified health problems and monitor for signs of new problems.
    • Safety Alert boxes highlight patient safety issues and focus on the National Patient Safety Goals.
    • Nutritional Therapy tables summarize nutritional interventions and strategies for promoting healthy lifestyles.
    • Promoting Population Health boxes summarize health care goals as they relate to specific disorders such as cancer and diabetes, and identify strategies for health promotion.
    • Drug Therapy tables and Drug Alerts highlight important safety considerations for key drugs.

    • Focus on patient and caregiver teaching shows how you can help patients and caregivers learn to manage chronic illnesses and conditions.
    • Ethical / Legal Dilemmas boxes introduce key topics such as informed consent, advance directives, and confidentiality.
    • Enhanced focus on clinical judgment and preparation for the Next-Generation NCLEX® Exam (NGN) features Applying Clinical Judgment With Multiple Patients boxes with traditional and NGN-style questions.
    • Revised table of contents reflects critical care content throughout the book and adds new chapters including Supporting Ventilation and Caring for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Gender Diverse Patients.
