Description - A Guide to Arthritis Home Health Care by Judith K. Sands

Arthritis is a major national health problem affecting millions of individuals who are rarely seen in tertiary care inpatient settings. A Guide to Arthritis Home Health Care is designed to serve as a guide to the delivery of nursing care to arthritis patients in the home setting. Nursing includes multiple strategies that may be employed to improve an arthritis patient's comfort and positive adaptation to the disease. This book uses a multidisciplinary perspective but presents only those strategies that can be used safely and independently by nurses in the community. Presented in a practical and applied rather than highly theoretical style, it is accompanied by multiple tools for assessment, planning, and patient teaching that can be adapted by readers for use in their own practice. A nursing process approach is used throughout, and case studies are included to assist the reader to review and apply the chapter content.
