Everything you need to know about dealing with HIV/AIDS in one concise volume Written by nurses for nurses, this thoroughly revised edition of ANACs Core Curriculum for HIV/AIDS Nursing highlights the extraordinary improvements in clinical and symptom management in HIV/AIDS over the last 10 years. Containing not only the essential information that every practitioner needs to know (such as taking a medical and social history, physical examination, symptomatic conditions and management, HIV testing, and laboratory and diagnostic evaluation), ANACs Core Curriculum also covers specialized nursing information such as case management, ethical and legal concerns, infection control, and patient education. Essential for those new to HIV/AIDS care as well as a refresher for those with years of experience in infectious diseases, ANACs Core Curriculum is a concise, but thorough reference for clinical, symptomatic, and psychosocial management of adults, adolescents, children, and infants at different stages of HIV/AIDS. ANACs Core Curriculum presents key details of symptomatic conditions, AIDS indicator diseases, and comorbid complications. It also describes how to manage anorexia/weight loss, cognitive impairment, cough, dyspnea, dysphagia, oral lesions, fatigue, fever, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sexual dysfunction, and vision loss. Most importantly, ANACa??s Core Curriculum offers suggestions about how to help clients handle their own health, including preventing transmission, health care follow-up, managing anti-retroviral therapy, and improved adherence to prescribed regimes. Dispensing not only clinical help, ANACa??s Core Curriculum details psychological assessment and deals with the psychosocial concerns of both clients and their significant others, including partners, spouses, families and friends. These important sections include information on how to help clients deal with the initial diagnosis, transitional issues (safer sex, depression), and coming to acceptance. Other important sections include discussions of the special needs of pediatric patients, including nutritional concerns, risks associated with treatments, and clinical problems such as developmental delay. ANACa??s Core Curriculum also briefly covers special populations, such as commercial sex workers, health care workers, older adults, pregnant women, and incarcerated people.
