Language: English | EPUB / MOBI | ISBN-10: 1841100366 | 2000 | 160 pages | 0.6 MB / 1 MB
The expanded practices and new roles which nurses are currently undertaking are often in areas in which a sound knowledge of the life sciences is essential. This book examines a number of advanced nursing skills, in each case describing the research evidence upon which the procedures discussed are based as well as the practical aspects of the procedures themselves. The knowledge of the life sciences that underpins these skills is also presented in each chapter and is always clearly linked to the advanced practices described. Although aimed primarily at post registered nurses, nurses undergoing pre-registration nurse education will find this book helpful as they themselves will be involved to a limited extent in the practices described.
