This well-known text 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
