Case Studies in Psychiatric Nursing is the fourth installment in this innovative series, providing forty psychiatric nursing case histories, questions, and responses based on real-life client situations. Every case contains an introductory "blueprint" of variables that must be considered while evaluating a particular scenario, which are pertinent concerning the client, nursing protocol, and setting of care. Examples of these variables include age, gender, culture of the client, pre-existing condition, legal issues, or communication skills. Each blueprint and case is different, just as each clinical situation is unique.
