Preface

As the 21st century begins, nurses face a future characterized by changes comparable to those of no preceding century:
Science and technology have made the world smaller by making it more accessible.
Mass communication is more widespread, and information is now just an instant away and very easy to obtain.
Economies are more global than regional.
Industrial and social changes have made world travel and cultural exchange common.

Today’s nurses enter a realm of opportunities and challenges for providing high-quality, evidence-based care in traditional as well as new and innovative health care settings. The rapid changes in health care mandate that nurses be prepared to provide or plan care across the continuum of settings—from hospital or clinic, to home, to community agencies or hospice settings—and during all phases of illness. Recent research has indicated that nurses make significant contributions to the health care outcomes of patients who are hospitalized. Therefore, today’s nurses must be prepared to identify patients’ short- and long-term needs quickly and to collaborate effectively with patients and families, other members of the health care team, and community agencies to create a seamless system of care.

The continued emphasis on health promotion efforts to keep well people healthy and to promote a higher level of well-being among those with acute and chronic illnesses requires today’s nurses to assist patients in adopting healthy lifestyles and strategies. Mapping of the human genome and other advances in genetics have moved the issue of genetics to the bedside and increased the need for nurses to become knowledgeable about genetics-related issues.

In preparing for these vast opportunities and responsibilities, today’s nurses must be well informed and up-to-date, not only in nursing knowledge and skills but also in research findings, scientific advances, and the ethical dilemmas inherent in many areas of clinical practice. More than ever, today’s nurses need to think critically, creatively, and compassionately.

This tenth edition of Brunner & Suddarth’s Textbook of MedicalSurgical Nursing is designed for the 21st century and nurses’ need to be knowledgeable, highly skilled, perceptive, caring, and compassionate. A goal of the textbook is to provide balanced attention to the art and science of adult medical-surgical nursing. It addresses nursing care issues from a physiological, pathophysiological, and psychosocial context and assists the reader to identify priorities of care from that context.
