Overview
This text covers the theory and practice of wellness-oriented gerontological nursing, addressing both physiologic and psychosocial aspects of aging.

Key features include: -NEW! Technology to Promote Wellness in Older Adults boxes describe examples of technology-based interventions that can be effective for promoting wellness for older adults. -NEW!

Global Perspective boxes provide examples of the various ways in which health care professionals in other countries provide care for older adults. -NEW!

These vignettes, which open each unit, feature patients from Wolters Kluwer's vSim for Nursing | Gerontology (co-developed with Laerdal Medical) and DocuCare products; however, each Unfolding Patient Story in the book stands alone, not requiring purchase of these products.
