Contemporary Medical-surgical Nursing, Volume 2
Thomson Delmar Learning, 2007 - Medical - 1408 pages
Contemporary is not only the first word in the title, but a key descriptor in this book's approach. The first new med-surg book to enter the market in years, Contemporary Medical-Surgical Nursing is a new and exciting text that presents comprehensive nursing care of the medical-surgical client as opposed to simply treating conditions and illnesses. Written with a focus on acute and collaborative care, this text is designed to be relevant and pragmatic in its approach by providing learner-oriented, logically organized information. It addresses key topic areas of clinical care, highlighting contemporary nursing approaches such as health care trends, health costs and benefits, law and ethics and cultural considerations. Contemporary Medical-Surgical Nursing helps bridge the gap from nursing student to professional by providing learners with the knowledge and skills that support today's nursing practice. Available as one comprehensive book or in two volumes.
