Part of McGraw-Hill's "Nurse to Nurse" series, this title includes PDA download of the entire text, vignettes, nursing alerts that feature just-in-time information on complex or particularly important aspects of patient care, and Therapeutic Dialogue Boxes that provide nurses with specific communication solutions for both patients and their families. Coated flex-binding repels stains. This title features: dementia basics; common complications of dementia; assessment of dementia; caregiving basics; common problems in daily care; managing behavioral problems; designing activities; and, helping families.
