Description - Care of Gastrointestinal Problems in the Older Adult by Sue E. Meiner

With gastrointestinal (Gl) disorders being diagnosed in 62 million Americans each year, this book provides an in-depth discussion of multiple common Gl disorders affecting older adults. It is written for professional nurses, technical nurses, undergraduate and graduate nursing students, and nursing in-service providers. Home-care providers and care givers can learn a great deal from reading chapters that can provide specific information related to direct patient care issues. Guidelines used are the most current ones formulated by the National Clearinghouse of Digestive Disorders and other authoritative medical societies and associations. Contributors to this text include nurse experts in the care of older adults with Gl disorders. Their expertise to each topic is presented in an easy to understand style with solid evidence-based information. The wide range of disorders is supported by an in-depth chapter on the essential role of nutrition. A chapter devoted to Gl cancers is extremely relevant in its review of some of the leading causes of death in the United States. Infectious and non-infectious Gl diseases provide information that is rarely discussed in similar texts.
