Assignment Considerations address situations in which the RN delegates tasks to the LPN/LVN or when the LPN/LVN assigns tasks to nurse assistants, patient care techs, and other unlicensed assistive personnel per the individual state nurse practice act. UNIQUE! Evidence-Based Practice is emphasized throughout with a special "EB" icon to highlight cutting-edge research studies in nursing practice. Legal and Ethical Considerations boxes focus on specific disorder-related issues. Safety Alert boxes highlight specific dangers to patients related to clinical care. Disaster management content focuses on preparation and mitigation to avoid losses and reduce the risk of injury associated with both natural and bioterrorist disasters. Clinical Cues provide guidance and advice related to the application of nursing care. Think Critically About... boxes encourage you to synthesize information and apply concepts beyond the scope of the chapter. UNIQUE! Concept Maps in the disorders chapters help you visualize difficult material and illustrate how a disorder's multiple symptoms, treatments, and side effects relate to each other. UNIQUE! Health Promotion Points boxes address wellness and disease prevention, including diet, infection control, and more. UNIQUE! Communication Cues help you learn to apply in therapeutic communication skills in realistic patient care situations. Cultural Cues related to biocultural variations, as well as health promotion for specific ethnic groups, are included throughout. Nutritional Therapies boxes related to nursing care for specific disorders address the need for holistic care, as well as the increased emphasis on nutrition on the NCLEX-PN exam. Patient Teaching boxes provide step-by-step instructions and guidelines for post-hospital care. Elder Care Points address the unique medical-surgical care issues affecting older adults.
