SUMMARY

Now part of the popular LPN Threads series, this market-leading text provides essential content for a solid foundation in maternity nursing. Its easy-to-follow body system approach progresses along a continuum from conception to adulthood, emphasizing prevention, early recognition, antepartum care, and the family. With its easy-to-read, clear writing style, it provides exactly the right depth and breadth of content for LPN/LVNs. Nursing Care Plans reinforce the nursing process as applied to maternity nursing. Skills teach basic techniques performed by the LPN/LVN in maternity nursing settings. Clinical Pathways, included where appropriate, provide a collaborative approach to care. Critical Thinking Activities feature brief clinical scenarios at the end of each chapter to encourage problem-solving and critical interpretation of data. A unique, built-in Self-Assessment workbook section, perforated at the back of the book, includes clinical situations, Internet activities, and multiple-choice questions. Fast Focus boxes present thought-provoking content on specific issues and topics related to chapter content. A chapter on Women's Health Issues (Chapter 22) covers major gynecologic concerns, STDs, and violence/rape trauma. A chapter on Complementary and Alternative Therapies (Chapter 23) discusses the wide range of nontraditional therapies that offer pain relief during labor and childbirth, a decrease in nausea during pregnancy, coping strategies for stress, and more. Healthy People 2010 objectives are incorporated throughout the text to familiarize readers with these key federal guidelines and objectives. Nursing care plans follow the nursing process format, with critical thinking question at the end. Content on the protection of patient privacy according to HIPAA and JCAHO standards discusses federal law and regulations of critical importance to both patients and care providers. Full-color LPN Threads design - with objectives, key terms, care plans with critical thinking questions, key concepts, bibliography and reader references, and more - makes this accessible, reader-friendly book even easier to use. NCLEX-PN Test Plan Comparison maps content from the text with the current test plan. Approximately 25 new, full-color photos add to the book's visual appeal and bring concepts to life. Cultural content in the first chapter and throughout the book has been expanded, now with full-color photographs. Provides basic information on Nursing Interventions Classifications (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC), promoting awareness and recognition of how these nursing languages are used.Leifer, Gloria is the author of 'Maternity Nursing An Introductory Text', published 2004 under ISBN 9780721604787 and ISBN 0721604781.
