A humanistic approach to maternal-newborn care and women’s health

Olds’ Maternal-Newborn Nursing & Women’s Health Across the Lifespan acknowledges the central role of nurses in all aspects of childbearing. Relatable and engaging, it promotes holistic, evidence-­based care grounded in patient-family partnerships, while supporting the clinical reasoning skills nurses need to care for patients in an ever-­changing health care system.

The 11th edition includes a new Reproductive Genetics chapter and a new Case Study feature, plus access to Pearson’s MAP app with nursing strategies for educating patients and families in various situations and settings.

Features
  • Clinical Skill boxes walk students step by step through the tasks and procedures nurses are expected to perform in clinical situations. Included are preparatory steps with rationales and the equipment and supplies needed.
  • Assessment Guides help students organise the steps and questions of a physical assessment and identify and record normal findings, alterations, and possible causes. Also included are guidelines for nursing interventions.
  • A new Reproductive Genetics chapter reflects an emerging understanding of genome science, its impact on health and illness in childbearing families, and the expanding role nurses play in applying genetics in practice.
  • A new two-page, 16-photograph Birth Sequence is a moment-by-moment visualisation of the birth process.
  • Developing Cultural Competence introduces cultural issues relevant to maternity and newborn nursing care and prompts students to consider why these issues may influence a family’s experience with the health care system.
  • Teaching Highlights throughout the text present a special health care issue or problem and the key teaching points that the patient and family need to provide the proper care.
  • Professionalism in Practice focuses on topics such as legal considerations, contemporary nursing practice issues, professional accountability, patient advocacy, and home and community care considerations.
  • Information on the care needs of women and mothers with intellectual disabilities has been added to Chapter 7, Social Issues, and Chapter 33, The Postpartum Family: Needs and Care.
  • Evidence-Based Practice describes a problem or clinical question, investigates the research evidence from a variety of sources, and asks the student to determine the best course of action according to the evidence.
  • A new Case Study feature shows students how to apply theory to clinical practice as they follow the experiences of four pregnant women with various issues and concerns.
  • Concept maps, expanded in this edition, provide an algorithm or flowchart to assist nurses in planning and providing care. The map provides a visual description of data to be analysed in making decisions about care.
  • Genetic Facts encourage critical analysis of the genetic implications of topics in the chapter.
