To effectively lead and co-ordinate care, nurses must have the necessary knowledge to understand common conditions and manage subsequent health needs whilst ensuring that nursing decisions are evidence based. Adult Nursing Practice has been specifically designed for today's nursing students and newly qualified staff to develop their knowledge and skills. Focusing on the common diseases, health needs and symptoms which nurses' encounter in practice, it identifies how readers can use research-based evidence in their daily nursing care. Written and edited by leading nurses from practice, education and research, this book is a contemporary, reliable and detailed account of nursing practice. Each chapter clearly sets out core pathophysiology, nursing assessment, and 'what the evidence says' before discussing nursing management options. Reflecting the new NMC competencies, an emphasis is placed on the development of critical thinking skills in order to make informed nursingdecisions. With over 115 illustrations, a wealth of learning features and online resources, this is the ideal textbook to prepare students for registration and guide newly qualified staff through preceptorship and beyond.
