"Transcultural Nursing Theory and Models: Application in Nursing Education, Practice, and Administration is a must read for the nurse currently practicing. National and global changes in demographics, a changing global economy, have further dramatized the need for culturally competent nurses. I found this book to be what I had hoped for and more related to my understanding of the concept of transcultural nursing (TCN)....I would highly recommend this book to any nurse who is looking to deepen her understanding of the many diverse cultures she encounters at the bedside, or out in the community using components of the theory, models and assessment guide presented in this book."--Advance for Nurses "This book makes a worthwhile contribution to the field of transcultural nursing by complementing texts that introduce theory and models or delve into them individually and more deeply. Sagar contributes her expertise as a Transcultural Nursing Scholar by focusing on how to use the models and guide. She explains and shows the readerhow transcultural nursing theory can be disseminated and implemented."--Online Journal of Cultural Competence in Nursing and Healthcare This volume is the first to examine and promote the application of current, major transcultural nursing (TCN) theory and models and assessment tools in nursing education, practice, and administration. As a comprehensive text for master's and bachelor's level nursing students, it features case studies, care plans, initial role playing exercises, and implications of TCN concepts when planning, implementing and evaluating client care.

Take the ‘next step’ in health assessment! Advanced Health Assessment and Clinical Diagnosis in Primary Care, 5th Edition goes beyond basic history and physical examination to help you master the diagnostic reasoning process. You’ll develop this key skill by following assessment guidelines that focus on a specific complaint rather than beginning with a previously established diagnosis or disease entity. Written by advanced practice nursing experts Joyce Dains, Linda Baumann, and Pamela Scheibel, this edition includes new chapters on evidence-based preventive health screening and on heartburn and indigestion, along with a new full-color design. Master the differential diagnosis process outlined in this book, and you’ll be able to accurately diagnose the majority of patients seen in today’s primary care settings. A clear, consistent diagnostic reasoning process takes you to the next step of health assessment — beyond basic history and physical examination to diagnostic reasoning. Diagnostic Reasoning: Focused History sections use ‘self-questions’ to walk you through the thinking process involved in obtaining a pertinent, relevant, problem-specific history that will assist in differential diagnosis. Diagnostic Reasoning: Focused Physical Examination sections explain how to perform more advanced diagnostic techniques and interpret the findings. Key Questions guide you through assessment and toward an accurate diagnosis by listing questions to ask the patient, followed by explanations of what the patient's responses might signify. Laboratory and Diagnostic Studies sections outline the types of studies that might be appropriate based on the focused history and focused physical examination. Differential Diagnosis sections offer the most common diagnoses for each patient problem and summarize the history and physical examination findings, along with recommended laboratory and diagnostic studies. Differential Diagnosis tables provide a quick-reference summary of possible diagnoses for each patient problem. Evidence-Based Practice boxes — more than 30 are NEW — summarize the scientific evidence related to the diagnosis of patient problems. Alphabetical Table of Contents provides a convenient listing of common health problems. NEW Evidence-Based Preventive Health Screening chapter helps you screen for common asymptomatic conditions and promote wellness. NEW Heartburn and Indigestion chapter addresses this common condition and includes important differential diagnoses such as myocardial infarction and cancer of the esophagus. NEW! Separate chapters on limb pain divide the topic by lower extremities and upper extremities, offering more focused, easy-to-locate coverage. NEW! Information on screening for abuse and sexual assault helps in identifying patients who might need additional support or intervention. NEW! Updated information on psychiatric/mental health problems reflects the latest changes in practice as well as changes to the DSM. NEW! More than 20 NEW illustrations enhance content and a full-color design makes topics easier to find.

For over 40 years, advanced practice nursing has had an enormous impact on the health of individuals and communities across Canada. This inaugural textbook provides a concrete overview of the nurse practitioner and clinical nurse specialist roles within a uniquely Canadian context. Canadian Perspectives on Advanced Practice Nursing explores the origins and development of advanced practice nursing in Canada, from rural and remote outpost beginnings up to the present day, and proposes a vision for its future in health care. Showcasing exemplary contributions from Canadian nursing academics, leaders, and practitioners throughout the country, this edited collection provides evidence for the value of advanced practice nursing across all levels of the health care system. Key topics are examined in relation to the socio-political, educational, regulatory, legislative, and economic environments that have shaped the continued integration of advanced practice nursing roles. Using a case study methodology, the contributors draw on real clinical situations to understand the various specialties, operational definitions, competencies, and critical issues relevant to advanced practice nursing. The text’s theory-to-practice application and rich pedagogy make it an excellent teaching resource. Highly accessible and comprehensive, it contributes to the knowledge of professional nursing and is essential reading for advanced practice nurses, students, educators, policy makers, and leaders in health care.
