Psychiatric-Mental Health Nursing, 6th Edition

Succeed in your course and prepare for effective practice with Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing: 6th Edition. Focused throughout on helping you develop the skills and knowledge you’ll need on the job, this practical book explores the full psychiatric nursing curriculum and gives you opportunities to practice specific nursing interventions, build therapeutic communication skills, and apply content within the framework of the nursing process. A study guide built into every chapter helps you master key concepts and build critical reasoning skills.

  • Identify major disorders through clinical vignettes that “paint a picture” of the disorder in action.
  • Prepare for effective practice with Best Practice boxes.
  • Increase your clinical decision-making skills with the Psych Nursing Online Video Series that shows realistic patient scenarios, and then asks you to make decisions and answer questions.
  • Learn what to look for in your clients through non-judgmental, cartoon-like illustrations that depict disorders.
  • Master key concepts and skills through Critical Thinking questions, Chapter Reviews, and a built-in chapter Study Guide that provides workbook-style fill-in, short-answer, and NCLEX-style questions that test knowledge and understanding. Answers appear at the back of the book.
  • Enhance your personal and professional development through chapter-ending Self-Awareness features that encourage you to reflect on yourself, your emotions, and your attitudes.
  • Build skills in culturally sensitive practice through Cultural Considerations sections.
  • Enhance your therapeutic communication skills through Therapeutic Communication Dialogues, which are set off with an icon and give specific examples of nurse-client interactions.
  • Strengthen your role as an educator through Client/Family Education boxes.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
