Nursing Care Plans: Transitional Patient & Family Centered Care teaches students to create nursing care plans and effectively document care while developing critical reasoning. This proven book focuses on the most important nursing plans, ensuring students learn what they need to know. It is easy-to-understand and contains practical tools to help prepare students for clinical practice. Students learn the importance of evidence-based practice through evidence-based rationales and guidelines. Nursing Care Plans is organized into three units. The book opens with an overview of 11 steps in care planning and walks the student nurse through each phase of the process, leaving students with a clear understanding of the importance of each step. Unit 1 focuses on the introduction to client and family centered care; Unit 2 covers individual nursing diagnoses and collaborative problems; and Unit 3 comprises care plans for medical conditions, patients experiencing surgical procedures, and patients undergoing diagnostic studies or therapeutic procedures. Unit 3 also includes specialty care plans including maternity, newborn, pediatrics, and mental health. Features: - Clinical Alerts are placed in the plans to advise the clinical or student nurse of a serious event that requires immediate action. - Clinical Alert Reports are a list of clinical observations or findings that are communicated to the novice or student nurses and/or medical assistants before they begin care that needs to be monitored for. Changes in status need to be reported in a timely and sometimes urgent fashion. - Carp?s Cues notes from the author to emphasize a certain principle of care. - STAR (stop, think, act, review) is an evidence-based model to help the nurse assess a situation prior to intervening and to evaluate the response after acting. - SBAR (situation, background, assessment, recommendation) is a framework for clearly, consistently, and succinctly communicating pertinent information among health care professionals. - Transition to Home/Community Care addresses the assessment of risk factors that increase the likelihood that transition will be delayed - or that problems may occur at home that can complicate recovery or cause readmission to the acute care agency. - Transitional Risk Assessment Plan (TRAP) certain factors in individual clients increase their risk for complications as falls, infections, and pressure ulcers. - Rationale evidence based rationales and guidelines included in interventions
