Summary Nursing Care of Older Adults is designed to help nurses recognise signs and symptoms, aid diagnoses, select pertinent outcomes to monitor and evaluate the older adults status, and prescribe correct interventions. The book is organised into 11 units by functional health patterns and will include the use of standardised nursing diagnoses, nursing sensitive outcomes and interventions to assist nurses with assessment, diagnostic reasoning and evaluation of outcomes effectiveness. The book will also assist nurses to identify critical gaps and future research needs. This will help to support nursing practice and illustrate why the use and documentation of nurses' decisions and actions is essential in the delopment of evidence based practice, and to influence health policy decisions that benefit older adults. ...
