The Fourth Edition of this best-selling book has been completely revised and updated. To continue to support the expanding role of the nurse specialist, there are new sections on the management of conditions such as pyelonephritis, pneumonia, croup, and exacerbations of asthma and COPD. The simple, clear and easy to use format enables practice nurses, nurse practitioners, health visitors, midwives, and school nurses to access the current procedures for dealing with the routine situations they are likely to encounter in their daily practice. Now spiral bound, this new edition is even more suitable for quick reference during the consultation.
