From initial assessment to the fine points of patient and family education, this new Windows-based computer assisted instruction program helps nurses effectively handle the challenge of critically ill patients who have problems affecting the renal system. Each simulation employs the nursing process and encourages the user to make proper assessments and management decisions. The programs provide feedback so nurses can see how their choices would affect an actual patient.
Edited by an expert in nephrology nursing, the program presents five case studies with fully updated content and enhanced graphics. A bookmarking feature and glossary help nurses navigate through each case study. The format is easy and fun to use, guiding the user to each new step. Individual scores are recorded and may be printed for use in continuing education credit.
