Matteson & McConnell's Gerontological Nursing, 3rd Edition provides comprehensive, research-based information on nursing care of older adults. Beginning with the basics, the text uses a systems approach to describe the aging process from wellness to illness. It also describes physiological and psychological aspects of aging in detail, as well as assessment and practice in all settings using the nursing process. Each chapter incorporates a research and theory-based approach to the aging process. Content is comprehensive and focuses on caring for the older adult. The text examines the differences between normal aging conditions and clinical problems/conditions. Competencies and Roles in Gerontological Nursing section focuses on the process that nurses, especially clinical nurse specialists, use to impact gerontological nursing care. Nursing care plans provide the practitioner with nursing care scenarios applied to clinical practice. Expanded content on functional assessment, including addressing communication issues, both verbal and non-verbal, alerts the reader to vital issues that may affect the patient's plan of care. Color insert visually complements material on the integumentary section as it illustrates some of the major integumentary conditions affecting the gerontologic population. Reflections boxes written by experts across different nursing fields share personal experiences related to the chapters' content. Toward Better Health boxes provide key considerations for promoting healthy lifestyles. Assessment boxes emphasize specific physical tests and observations to make when assessing a patient. Age-Related Changes boxes detail the ways in which particular body systems are affected by the aging process. New chapters on End of Life Care, Evidence-Based Practice, and Assisted Living Care give the reader a more comprehensive look at gerontological nursing care.

Retaining its practical, clinically oriented approach, the 3rd edition covers a wide range of topics and issues necessary to deal with the older patient, in a succinct format that can be used in a variety of courses covering gerontological nursing. The book introduces the concept of "successful aging" -- the ability to maintain a low risk of disease and disease-related disability, high mental and physical function, and an active engagement in life. Successful aging, the use of the classifications of primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention, and the concept of health promotion are the organizing frameworks for such pertinent topics as end-of-life and palliative care, dementia care, and new care delivery options. Addresses both traditional and nontraditional settings of nursing care, yet retains its primary focus on acute care, the setting where most nurses are likely to encounter the older patient
