Here’s the 20th Anniversary Edition of the most complete and easy-to-use resource on how to develop practical, individualized plans of care for psychiatric and mental health patients.

It’s really 2 books in 1! The first half provides the diagnostic information needed to create a care plan; the second half covers the safe administration of psychotropic medications. And, the concepts can be applied to a variety of healthcare settings…from in-patient hospitalization through the outpatient clinic…to home health and private practice.

Completely revised and updated throughout, the 8th Edition reflects all of the new knowledge and new medications in the field, including an expanded section on psychotropic medications that encompasses all of today’s new drugs and the 2009-2011 content in the NANDA Nursing Diagnoses: Taxonomy II.
