Care of the Well NewbornAuthors: BJ Snell, Sandra L Gardner
“The editors, and their expert chapter authors, have written a text that incorporates both their experience and the current best evidence underlying the care advocated. In addition, they have made effective use of their experience in teaching and educational principles through their provision of learning activities, such as case studies, multiple choice questions, boxes and tables that organise and summarise content, illustrative figures, and references. Through all of these efforts, they have produced an enormously useful text for students and practitioners alike in the care of the well newborn.” – From the Foreword by Helen Varney Burst, CNM, MSN, DHL (Hon.), FACNM, Professor Emeritus, Yale University School of Nursing
Care of the Well Newborn is a unique text that focuses on care of the term newborn for the first month of life. Written by distinguished experts in the field, it teaches students and professionals how and what to assess in the care of the nonverbal newborn, while also providing criteria for recognising deviations from normal and strategies for managing complications that arise. The first text of its kind, it provides easily accessible information on evidence-based neonatal care that follows current guidelines, standards, and recommendations.
Also explored are physiology and pathophysiology, data collection, differential diagnosis, cultural considerations, and parental education. An ideal resource for both students and professionals, each chapter includes multiple choice questions, case studies, or activities to facilitate critical thinking and learning.
