A Textbook of Perioperative Care (Paperback)

£55.99
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

Woodhead and Wicker's new text will be the foremost reference source for all perioperative practitioners. This new text is unique in its approach to focus on the principles of perioperative care in a wide variety of different surgical environments. Surgery for patients has changed dramatically over the last few years and a text such as this is needed for students and practitioners in this specialised environment. The content mirrors the dynamics of modern perioperative practice by focusing on surgical interventions in all the environments in which it is currently practised, including A&E departments, general practice clinics, intensive care units, and at the site of serious accidents.



Reflects principles of practice, applicable to any perioperative environment

Strong practical focus

Edited by two of the biggest 'names' in the international perioperative nursing sphere, with contributions from other well-known and authoritative sources

Excellent opportunities to develop links with the National Association of Theatre Nurses and the European Operating Room Association

The team of contributors are experienced practitioners working directly with perioperative patients or in perioperative education

An original model for ethical practice is proposed: the Reid model is the first such ethical model to be proposed for the perioperative environment

Includes one of the only chapters in any perioperative book which specifically focuses on the care of the elderly.

The research chapter encourages the use of evidence based practice and the development of perioperative research

The unique chapter on care of the mentally ill will support practitioners who are not qualified in psychiatry to care for mentally ill patients. This is an area where there is a great information deficit







Key points listed for each chapter

Sections have been completely revised from previous edition - key subject areas now stand-alone chapters rather than sections within much larger chapters - creates ease of access for user

Change of editorship

Recognises the diversity of perioperative environments much more explicitly than previous edition
