Woodhead and Wicker's new text will be the foremost reference source for all perioperative practitioners. The content mirrors the dynamics of modern perioperative practice by focusing on surgical interventions in all the environments in which it is currently practised, including A&E departments, general practice clinics, intensive care units, and at the site of serious accidents. Theatre practice is becoming increasingly specialist; this book does not attempt to to reflect the needs of all specialties, but instead concentrates on the principles of practice, applicable to any setting and any specialty. It has a very practical focus - it aims to be the book that nurses and ODPs reach for in order to answer their practical questions - but is not be procedure-driven. Instead, it sets out the principles of perioperative practice, from which practitioners will be able to develop their own practice techniques.

    Published Review: This textbook serves as both an excellent introduction and as a thorough reference source for more experienced staff. It is attractively structured, with a mix of photographs, charts and bullet points offering a variety of routes to the information... This book does much to demonstrate that the professional practitioner provides holistic care for the perioperative patient... An excellent chapter on leadership discusses bullying and harassment, as well as management strategies to combat them.Anne Mottram, Lecturer in Nursing, Salford UniversityNursing Standard, Volume 20, No 41
