Emergency Nursing Care: Principles and Practice
Gary Jones, Ruth Endacott, Robert Crouch
Cambridge University Press, 2007 - Medical - 196 pages
The field of accident and emergency nursing is a fast moving one. This comprehensive textbook is aimed at both the qualified or trainee nurse who has specialised, or is thinking of specialising, in accident and emergency care. The authors and editors are all experienced nurses and nurse-educators who aim to provide easy to read, and easy to find information about procedures, conditions and nursing skills that a newcomer to the field may not be familiar with, or with which he or she has only a superficial knowledge. Throughout the text, much use is made of illustrations, tables and boxes of key information, and a comprehensive list of references is included at the end of each chapter.
