The Family Nurse Practitioner provides essential guidance and information for understanding how to diagnose and manage typical (and some atypical) patient cases. With contributions from noted experts on the topic, this new edition contains updated cases to reflect today's patient-centered approach, and includes the most recent advances in patient care. From neonatal to geriatric, all the cases demonstrate real-life scenarios and present appropriate solutions on a case-by-case basis to reflect the nuance required in practice.

The revised edition emphasizes pharmacological management, with a new section on mental health care and additional cases on chronic conditions. Greater consideration is given to race, gender, ethnicity and their impact on management options.
* Contains more than 70 case studies
* Offers new cases on pelvic pain, substance abuse, food allergies, celiac disease, child abuse, pre-conception planning, and dermatology
* Includes discussion questions to help develop understanding

Written for students and academics of nursing and nurse practitioners, The Family Nurse Practitioner is the ideal text for developing and expanding one's knowledge and comprehension of the diagnosis and management of patient care.
