Summary "Advanced Practice Nursing in the Care of Older Adults will serve as a guide for advanced practice nurses who are privileged to provide care to older adults. Designed as a text for students, as well as a reliable source of evidence-based practice for advanced practice nurses, this book contains information on healthy aging, comprehensive geriatric assessment, and common symptoms and illnesses that present in older adults. Given the complexity of prescribing for older adults taking multiple medications, a chapter on polypharmacy is included. The book concludes with a chapter on care delivery for patients with chronic illnesses who face end-of-life care"-- Provided by publisher
