SUMMARY

Lewis Medical-Surgical Nursing is a popular medical/surgical text used in nursing courses around the world containing solid, research-based content presented in a concise, readable, and consistent format. This Canadian edition focuses on ensuring that the appropriate Canadian content such as Canadian statistics, references, policy and practice guidelines, ethical and legal issues, cultural mix, and drug names are included throughout. Canadian editors, Sandra Goldsworthy and Maureen Barry, have adapted and updated each of the 67 chapters, selecting nursing experts from across the country to contribute to each chapter to ensure all pertinent Canadian content is included. Special features highlight the content that is most relevant and challenging for today's nursing students, including patient teaching, community and home care, gerontology, cultural and ethnic considerations, collaborative care, nutrition, and critical thinking. Nursing management content is discussed in a unique levels-of-care approach, with separate headings for Health Promotion, Acute Intervention, and Ambulatory and Home Care. More than just a textbook, it is a comprehensive resource with the essential information that students need to prepare for lectures, classroom activities, examinations, clinical assignments, and comprehensive care of patients.
