Townsend, Mary C.
Most of the 30 chapters in this handbook review background data for selecting nursing diagnoses appropriate to a client with alterations in psychosocial adaptation, and recommend nursing interventions for approximately 200 psychiatric disorders. Drug chapters identify major categories of psychotropic medications by chemical class, and list their indications, actions, interactions, route and dosage, and side effects. The seventh edition adds a final chapter on agents for treating ADHD.
