1. Care Planning and Educating Patients to Reduce Complications and Improve Rehabilitation
As many times as patients can be assessed, without appropriate care planning, education, and action, those assessments will serve little purpose. This chapter presents care plans, educational topics and activity opportunities the nurse can utilize with patients to best ensure reduction of complications and for the enhancement of an optimal rehabilitation.
