Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Complementary/Alternative Therapies in Nursing, Fifth Edition, guides nurses in the art and science of holistic nursing and healing. It builds upon and extends previous editions with the essential philosophical knowledge, self as healer, and current evidence-based practices. The book's six parts -- foundations for practice, mind-body-therapies, energy and biofield therapies, manipulative and body-based therapies, biologically based therapies, and perspectives on future research and practice -- assist nurses with a clear way to organize their knowledge and how to educate patients about complementary and alternative therapies. It is crucial that nurses continue to become more informed about complementary and alternative therapies so they may safely and appropriately become integrated into current nursing practice, education, and research."

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Nisha Manek on December 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
Dr. Rakel and colleague have edited an excellent resource guide to access and understand the variety of complementary medicine modalities for improving health in older adults. It is a thoroughly researched and easy to understand guide for both the general public and physician alike. Dr. Rakel, who holds a fellowship degree in Integrative medicine, has brought her own perspective and insights into the challenges that face an aging population. Highly recommended for all interested in complementary medicine.
