Written for nursing students, educators for geriatric nursing courses, practitioners at all levels including those in specialty roles, and nurse leaders, the new fifth edition of Evidence-Based Geriatric Nursing Protocols for Best Practice delivers current guidelines, real-life case studies, and evidence-based protocols developed by master educators and practitioners.
