Previous editions of this popular textbook have provided nursing students with the comprehensive guide they need to a wide range of clinical nursing issues. This edition continues to provide this comprehensive support, but also reflects the changing context of nursing care in the 21st century. It reflects the growing importance of primary health and the community, the move towards evidence-based practice and the importance of the multi-disciplinary team. The text is designed to emphasise the importance of holistic, patient-focussed nursing. It addresses health assessment and introduces students to key aspects of the medical history and physical exam. Contemporary issues such as substance misuse are also examined.
Clearly written and well-organised to support study, the text also features case studies, critical incidents and care plans. The chapters include extensive 2-colour artwork and are supported by current references and suggestions for further reading. Electronic ancillary material is available at http://evolve.elsevier.com/Walsh/Watsons/
