Caring for the Renal Patient
Includes chapters on humane caring for the renal patient--addressing chronic illness, narrative ethics, advance directives, and terminal care--and on the role of nurses in caring for the renal patient. The 3rd edition provides additional relevant clinical examples through numerous case studies, but retains the boxes, tables, and bolding that make the book an excellent, concise and accessible reference resource.
