Emphasizing psychopharmacology, the recovery model, and DSM-5 throughout, this practical book will help students:
- Master essential psychiatric nursing concepts through Key Diagnostic Characteristics summaries, which describe diagnostic criteria, target symptoms, and associated findings for select disorders, adapted from the DSM-5 by the American Psychiatric Association.
- Hone an understanding of commonly prescribed medications for patients with mental health problems through Drug Profile boxes that complement text discussions of biologic processes associated with various mental health disorders.
- Develop a deeper understanding of mental health patients through case studies interwoven in the mental health disorder chapters that are brought to life by online videos of these case patients displaying these disorders.
- Prepare for effective practice through online Nursing Care Plans, most of which are based on the book’s case studies. These plans present clinical examples of patients with a particular diagnosis and demonstrate plans of care that follow patients through various diagnostic stages and care delivery settings.
