High-Acuity Nursing provides a comprehensive knowledge set needed to care for adult patients with complex, unpredictable conditions across settings, from high-skill, long-term facilities to critical care units. Focusing on the relationship between pathophysiology and the nursing process, the text encourages students to think critically to reach optimal clinical decisions for high-acuity patients. All chapters in the 7th edition have been updated and many have been reorganized and expanded. A new chapter focuses on palliative care and end-of-life issues, and new features address quality and safety, along with genetic considerations.
