"There are few new books to direct PMH-APRN treatment options...Now, this book provides the path to integration of treatment options for the holistic care of psychiatric client by PMH-APRNs."--Doody's Medical Reviews ìThis text is a wonderful compilation of information that is needed within current advanced practice psychiatric mental health nursing. The chapters are informative, have excellent references and provide up to the minute information that is grounded in evidence-based practices.î Barbara Jones Warren, PhD, RN, CNS-BC, PMH, FAAN Professor, Clinical Nursing Director, Psychiatric Nursing Specialty National Institutes of Health/American Nurses Association Ethnic/Racial Minority Fellow The Ohio State College of Nursing This groundbreaking core text fills a void in nursing literature by integrating psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) approaches into advanced practice nursing.

This holistic text integrates neurobiology, theory, and research evidence related to psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, and complementary and alternative medicine interventions. While providing comprehensive information on theory and practice, it simplifies complex aspects of treatment with clarity and provides the depth of content appropriate to support sound clinical reasoning required in advanced practice.

Sedation and Sleep in Critical Care An Update An Issue of Critical Care Nursing Clinics Excerpt :

Sedation is a necessary component of care for critically ill and injured individuals. Sedatives assist in coping with mechanical ventilation and other invasive devices, and help patients tolerate procedures and noxious stimuli in the intensive care unit. Sedatives are also useful in the control of agitation and delirium. In addition to fundamental humane reasons, calming patients with sedatives provides physiologic benefits, such as reducing oxygen consumption expended during restlessness, and prevents dislodgement of life-preserving tubes and catheters. When administering sedatives to manage critically ill patients, clinicians must be cognizant of the many complex issues surrounding their use. This issue, edited by Consulting Editor, Dr. Jan Foster, provides current updates in this area, including new guidelines and a focus on delirium.
