Patient Education for Self-Care: The Role of Nurses. Current Bibliographies in Medicine. January 1983 through November 1990.
Tillman, Peggie S., Comp.
This bibliography contains 468 citations to journal articles and monographs on the role of the nurse in educating the patient or care provider for more involved self-care. Self-care is defined as the deliberate, voluntary practice of activities by individuals in the interest of health maintenance and promotion. A variety of National Library of Medicine (NLM) online files from January 1983 through November 1990 were included in the search of the literature (e.g., MEDLINE, AVLINE, BIOETHICSLINE, CANCERLIT, CATLINE, HEALTH, POPLINE, AND TOXLINE). Selected items have been categorized into the following subject areas: (1) Assessment; (2) Education; (3) Geriatrics; (4) Models; (5) Psychology; and (6) Rehabilitation. A citation appears under only one category. Also included in this bibliography is a sample search strategy for the MEDLINE database and a key to understanding the citations. An order blank has been included for GRATEFUL MED, the microcomputer-based software that provides a user-friendly interface to most NLM databases. (MAB)
