- Scales: This area provides descriptions and links to commonly used scales, such as numeric pain scales, to help assess patients and improve outcomes.
- Diseases & Disorders: This area contains original, peer-reviewed overviews focusing on specific disorders and diseases. Nurses can benefit from the signs/symptoms, complications and interventions sections of the Briefs, which also include other focus areas on prevalence, pathophysiology, risk factors, and special considerations for a more in-depth look at each disease and disorder.
- Mosby's Nursing Consult Mobile App: Labs & Diagnostics will be added to the iOS (iPhone, iPad, etc.) and Google (Android smartphones and tablets) apps, which already contain Evidence-based Nursing Recommendations, Drug Monographs, Patient Education, and Drug Calculators.
"In updating Mosby's Nursing Consult and its
accompanying apps, we aimed to make available the most current and accurate
drug information, patient handouts, and evidence-based nursing
recommendations," said Cindy Tryniszewski, RN, MSN, Executive Director,
