Product Description

The authors of this book share decades of geriatric perioperative nursing care experience with readers in a thorough, systematic manner....[This book] would be an excellent addition to the library of any health care professional, especially a perioperative nurse, who provides care to older adults."--AORN Journal, the official publication of the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses

This is a solid, well thought out book. The text has a clarity and focus which enhances understanding of the topics presented. It is particularly notable for crisp reading and uncomplicated, meaningful illustrations. Kudos to the authors for presenting such a medically solid book without losing the art of nursing care or the vision of a well tended patient."--Nursing News

This timely volume introduces gerioperative care, a new model of surgical care for the elderly designed to improve surgical outcomes and prevent complications through a focus on communication and relationship-centered care. It is the only book to specifically address the care of older adults undergoing surgery, providing practitioners with critical, practical, and theoretical information from the initial decision to have surgery through the first follow-up visit post-discharge. The text includes the anatomy and physiology of aging, preoperative care, intraoperative and post-anesthesia care, postoperative care, returning home, risk appraisal, education, prevention, early intervention, multidisciplinary team collaboration, and effective communication across all systems of care.

Gerioperative Nursing Care is an essential resource for students and practitioners of surgical, critical/acute care, and geriatric nursing, along with clinical and case managers. The tools presented help to sustain and enhance quality nursing care for older adults considering surgery, undergoing surgery, and during post-surgery visits.
