    "An excellent handbook which covers all aspects of coronary heart disease and will serve as a very useful reference for nurses working in primary and secondary health prevention"Nursing in General Practice
    has been the handbook for many nurses undertaking courses on coronary heart disease (CHD). This second edition has been extensively revised to incorporate the many important developments in CHD care that have occured over the last few years. The book is invaluable for practice nurses seeing patients in this important area of clinical practice and will enable them to provide evidence-based care to an ever increasing number of patients with CHD.

    book provides a comprehensive guide covering all aspects of coronary heart disease prevention. It is clearly written; there are summaries of key points at the end of each chapter, case studies and practical exercises to help the application of theory to practice. This is an excellent book for all health professionals involved in the prevention of coronary heart disease."" Liz Colley, Community Practtioner, May 2004
