Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Nurses must deliver up-to-date, clinically effective, evidence-based care across a range of settings and develop nursing services to meet changing demands. The thoroughly revised and restructured Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing 2nd edition is tailored to provide the essential knowledge nurses need; at their fingertips when they need it.

This handbook will guide the reader through the care of patients with a wide range of conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Each chapter is written in a consistent structure for ease-of-use, including symptoms, causes, investigations, and treatments. Key information is provided clearly and succinctly with tables and bullet points. Chapters cover everything from anatomy to the appropriate treatment or nursing care. It now includes new conditions including colorectal cancer, anal warts, cleft

lip, and volvulus, as well as the enhanced recovery after surgery pathway. Providing key summaries of common problems and essential issues, it will provide both an invaluable reference for gastrointestinal nurses, as well as a precise, targeted guide for nurses from other specialties caring for

patients with GI problems.
