Olds' Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women's Health Across the Lifespan:International Edition

Description

For use as a core text for Maternity Nursing courses that include women's health.

 

Nurses working with childbearing families face a variety of new challenges, including shortened lengths of hospital stay, the trend toward greater use of community-based and home care, and downsizing and mergers of health-care systems. The Eighth Edition of this popular text continues to emphasize the central role played by maternity nurses working with today's childbearing families, but also includes a global perspective, covering culture as a factor in relating to the woman's childbirth experience.  Women's health is emphasized throughout the lifespan, not only during the childbearing years, providing a more comprehensive perspective.


Features

Through the Eyes of a Nurse            ****NEW FEATURE****

Students will see what a true nurse-family partnership looks like to help them prepare for their clinical experience through this exciting new feature.  Throughout the text and on the accompanying Prentice Hall Nursing MediaLink DVD-ROM is the unfolding story of an expecting couple and their nurse through three prenatal office visits and one postpartal visit. 

 

Each Through the Eyes of a Nurse feature in the textbook includes:

  • The Family's Experience section, which presents the question or concern. 
  • The Nurse's Response, which addresses the client's concern in a compassionate manner, taking the opportunity to educate the client.
  • Finally, the Nurse's Actions and Rationale section explains why the nurse responded as she did and points out the evidence for the response, referenced elsewhere in the text.

Each Through the Eyes of a Nurse DVD-ROM feature includes: 

  • Video of the couple and nurse during a prenatal or postpartal office visit
  • Introduction by author Michele Davidson
  • Essay-style questions that encourage students to think critically about what they viewed

 

Critical Thinking in Action                 ****NEW FEATURE****

Included at the end of each chapter, Critical Thinking in Action provides a real-life scenario with a series of critical thinking questions so that students can “practice” what they learned.  The DVD-ROM continues the exercise with a video enactment of the situation, followed by questions, to prepare students for clinical experiences.

 

Client Teaching

These effective guides provide students with a teaching plan to use when educating the client and family about any aspect of self-care or a special health care issue.

 

Community-Based Nursing Care

The provision of nursing care in community-based settings is a driving force in health care today and, consequently, is a dominant theme throughout this edition.  

Chapter 36, Home Care of the Postpartal Family, provides a thorough explanation of home care as an important aspect of care for childbearing families.

 

Emphasis on Client and Family Teaching

Client and family teaching is a crucial responsibility of the maternal-newborn nurse, one we continue to emphasize strongly and highlight in this eighth edition.

  • The tear-out Client/Family Teaching Cards are handy tools for the student to use while studying or for quick reference in the clinical setting.
  • A foldout, full-color Fetal Development Chart depicts maternal/fetal development month by month and provides specific teaching guidelines for each stage of pregnancy. Students can use this chart as another tool for study or as a quick clinical reference.

Evidence-Based Practice                 ****NEW FEATURE****

Evidence-based practice is an essential element to help students understand the use of reliable information to plan and provide effective nursing care.  These boxes provide discussions of clinical situations, typical nursing practice, and the current research that supports or fails to support that practice.

 

Complementary and Alternative Therapies

In addition to an entire chapter introducing the student to complementary and alternative therapies, these boxes inform students about therapies their clients might be using or therapies the nurse might safely suggest.  In all cases, research is cited for safe practice of these therapies.

 

Developing Cultural Competence

These boxes foster students' awareness to cultural factors that influence a family's expectations of and responses to their health care provider and their experiences with the health care system.  With this edition, we have increased the number of these boxes.

 

Research in Practice

These examples of research provide strong cases of relevant, clinically focused nursing research.

 

Drug Guides

Drug Guides for selected medications commonly used in maternal-newborn nursing guide students in correctly administering the medications and evaluating their actions.

 

Procedures

These features inform students about step-by-step techniques to perform tasks expected of a nurse in clinical situations.  Included in each box are the preparation steps with rationales, equipment and supplies needed, and steps for the procedure itself, with rationales for the nurse's actions.

[COPY TO COME for Michele Davidson]

 

Marcia L. London

Marcia L. London has been able to combine her two greatest passions by being both a nurse caring for children and families and a teacher for almost 35 years. She received her B.S.N. and school nurse certificate from Plattsburgh State University in Plattsburgh, New York. After graduation, she began her nursing career as a pediatric nurse at St. Luke's Hospital in New York City then moved to Pittsburgh, where she began her teaching career. Mrs. London accepted a faculty position at Pittsburgh's Children's Hospital Affiliate Program and received her M.S.N. in pediatrics as a clinical nurse specialist from the University of Pittsburgh. Mrs. London began teaching at Beth-El School of Nursing and Health Science in 1974 after opening the first intensive care nursery at Memorial Hospital of Colorado Springs. She has served in many administrative and faculty positions at Beth-El, including coordinator for nursing care of children for 32 years. Mrs. London maintains her clinical skills working in an urgent care and after-hours clinic and doing undergraduate pediatric clinical supervision. She obtained her postmaster's neonatal nurse practitioner certificate in 1983 and subsequently developed the neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program and the master's NNP program at Beth-El. She is active nationally in neonatal nursing and was involved in the development of the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Educational Program Guidelines. She has contributed 5 chapters to various neonatal nursing texts. Mrs. London is active in nurse practitioner education in general. She was involved in the revision of the Core Competency for Nurse Practitioners and Curriculum Guidelines for Nurse Practitioner Education, as a member of the Education Committee of the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties and participated as part of the Core Competency Validation Expert Panel. Mrs. London has also pursued her interest in college student learning by taking doctoral classes in  higher education administration and adult learning at the University of Denver in Colorado. She feels fortunate to be involved in the education of her future colleagues. Her teaching philosophy is that, with support, students can achieve more than they may initially believe they are capable of achieving. Mrs. London and her husband have two sons and one dog (Reilly, daughter by proxy). Her two sons, Craig and Matthew, are involved in computer informatics, and media arts and animation and are more than willing to give Mom helpful hints.

 

Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig

Patricia A. Wieland Ladewig received her B.S. from the College of Saint Teresa in Winona, Minnesota. After graduation, she worked as a pediatric nurse before joining the U.S. Air Force. After completing her tour of duty, Dr. Ladewig relocated at Florida, where she accepted a faculty position at Florida State University. There she embraced teaching as her calling. Over the years, she taught at several schools of nursing while earning her M.S.N. in maternal-newborn nursing from Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., and her Ph.D. in higher education administration from the University of Denver in Colorado. In addition, she became a women's health nurse practitioner and maintained a part-time clinical practice. In 1988 Dr. Ladewig became the first director of the nursing program at Regis College in Denver and., in 1991, when the college became Regis University, she became dean of the Rueckert-Hartman School for Health Professions. Under her guidance, the Department of Nursing has added a graduate program and the School  has added three departments: the Department of Physical Therapy, the Department of Health Services Administration and Management, and the Department of Health Care Ethics. Dr. Ladewig feels that teaching others to be excellent, caring nurses gives her the best of all worlds because it keeps her in touch with the profession she loves and enables her to help shape the future of the nursing profession. When not at work or writing textbooks, Pat and her husband, Tim, enjoy skiing, baseball games, and traveling. However their greatest pleasure comes from their family: son Ryan, his wife, Amanda, and grandson Reed; and son, Erik, his wife Kedri, and granddaughter Emma.
