The second edition of Patricia Tabloski’s Gerontological Nursing is a comprehensive, research-based text that will guide nursing students in their care of older patients. The text presents information related to normal and pathological changes of aging, with an emphasis on the critical information that nurses need for assessment, diagnosis, planning and evaluating care outcomes for their older clients.  Bolstered by current research in nursing, medicine, sociology and psychology, this book combines information on medical-surgical care for older patients with issues facing the older population.  It emphasizes both critical thinking and application of the nursing process to give students the confidence they need to provide the highest level of care.
