Overview

Geropsychiatric and Mental Health Nursing, Second Edition addresses the knowledge and skills necessary in the assessment and nursing care of older adults experiencing common late life mental health and psychiatric problems. This text features experts in gerontological nursing and geropsychiatric fields and provides essential information for advanced practice and professional nurses in addition to graduate and undergraduate nursing students. The Second Edition has been completely revised and updated to include crucial areas such as assessment, diagnosis, psychopharmacology, and behavioral management strategies in nursing care of older adults. New to this edition are case studies in each chapter and discussion questions.

This new edition also presents the work of the Geropsychiatric Nursing Collaborative (GPNC) in its entirety. The focus of the GPNC is to improve the education of nurses who care for elders suffering from depression, dementia, and other mental health disorders. The collaborative effort enhances extant competencies for all levels of nursing education, focusing on older adults with mental health/illness concerns. Shared in the Appendix are the competency statements developed for basic, graduate, post-graduate, and continuing education nursing programs.
