Drugs and medical devices are discussed that may have limited availability controlled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use only in a research study or clinical trial. Research, clinical practice, and government regulations often change the accepted standard in this field. When consideration is being given to use of any drug in the clinical setting, the health care provider or reader is responsible for determining FDA status of the drug, reading the package insert, and reviewing prescribing information for the most up-to-date recommendations on dose, precautions, and contraindications, and determining the appropriate usage for the product.

This is especially important in the case of drugs that are new or seldom used.

I am fortunate to have loving and supportive children, Kirstin, Karine, and Tyler, who all have wonderful spouses and children.

My grandchildren, always increasing in numbers but as of today include Kyle, Kaia, Kaden, Kolton, Juliana, Lucien, Mackenzie, Elida, and Warren—they are the most amazing loves of my life. To Jack, who has been supportive of my professional career and passion about the role of nurse practitioners. I also offer my sincere gratitude to my colleagues who are a joy to work with and true scholars who I admire more than they realize. 

Finally, and importantly, my dear friend and colleague without whom I would never have made it to this point in my profession. Sue DeNisco, thank you for supporting and encouraging me through the good times and the not-so-good times, and for being my professional partner in everything I do. Julie G. Stewart (MorMor) Life is full of changes; therefore, I want to dedicate this book to my mother who was my first editor during my early writing days.

By passing on her love of learning, gift of writing, and resilient spirit, I have had the fortitude to sit at the computer for exorbitant periods of time. I miss her every day but know that she is sitting on my shoulder. It goes without saying that my children, Alison, Michael, Spencer, Sarah, Brooke, and granddaughter Lenore, are major sources of pride and invigorate my spirit.

They are all amazing human beings with unique gifts and talents to share. There is never a dull moment! I have been very fortunate in both my clinical and academic career to have interfaced with amazing nurse colleagues who have been students, friends, fellow clinicians, mentors, and mentees. Julie G.

Stewart is a nurse educator, nurse practitioner, and nurse leader whom I call “the triple threat.” Her passion for life, sense of humor, and vision for the future of nursing keep me at her side. And lastly, Rick, you continue to amaze me with your patience, kindness, and support. I know how much you have sacrificed to have a wife that is a self-proclaimed workaholic. I love you always and forever. Susan M. DeNisco (Mom, Yia Yia) ©
