The 6th edition of Hartman Publishing’s best-selling home health aide training textbook, Providing Home Care: A Textbook for Home Health Aides, is here! We listened carefully to thousands of instructors who shared with us what they want in a home health aide training textbook.

The textbook retained all of the elements that customers valued:

  • Beautifully illustrated chapters organized around learning objectives
  • Clearly-marked procedures and color tabs for easy location of material
  • An accessible reading level, perfect for the many different types of students in today’s classroom
  • A table of procedures/skills, chapter review questions, and a glossary
  • Two sets of chapter exams for every chapter, along with a final exam
  • An emphasis on person-centered care throughout

And was updated to reflect customers’ needs:

  • We added information about COVID-19, electronic documentation, and how to measure blood pressure electronically.
  • We expanded sections on mental health disorders, special diets, advance directives, and gender identity.

In addition, the page count has not changed. And because we want to thank you for helping make this the bestselling home health aide textbook in the United States, we’re not raising prices!
