Summary

A complete resource for your career in nursing; this book gives you a sound knowledge basis for effective care and best practice in hospital and community settings and, alongside this, explores the many routes your professional development can take.

Part one explores the key aspects of the journey from commencing your adult nursing studies to becoming a consultant practitioner, researcher, manager or teacher, with the focus always on developing the best possible care.

Part two looks at the five major care themes: first contact, access and urgent care; supporting long term and palliative care; acute and critical hospital care; mental health and psychosocial care; and public health and primary care. A holistic and practical approach draws together research, policy guidelines, and nurse and patient experiences.

A companion website provides annotated weblinks to useful resources, PowerPoint presentations, interactive MCQs, and an 'ask the authors' feature.
