This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is a well-known text that provides guidelines for over 40 common nursing procedures carried out by carers in a variety of settings. The development of competence in these practices is one of the most important aspects of pre-registration programmes, and this is one of the few UK-based texts that takes an educational approach to these practices as opposed to a purely procedure-driven approach. As in previous editions, the emphasis is on a holistic approach with the recognition that each patient is a unique individual. Each procedure contains rationale and information for patient education in addition to step by step guidance.
    • Skills explained step by step to facilitate learning
    • The comprehensive range of procedures including advanced practices will give readers confidence when they begin clinical work
    • Relevance to hospital and community settings makes it applicable to a wide audience
    • The rationale sections link to the evidence-base thereby ensuring best practice
