Emergency care is a broad specialty. Emergency nurses have an increasing part to play in its delivery, wherever it occurs. Emergency nurses require a depth and breadth of knowledge and skill to care for patients with undifferentiated and undiagnosed problems. This book covers the main areas of clinical practice identified by the Royal College of Nursing Faculty of Emergency Nursing and will be invaluable to those nurses following the integrated career and competency framework for professional development. The text is up-to-date and evidence-based wherever possible, and where not possible, standards of best-accepted practice have been adopted. The principles of emergency care are universal and the book reflects this, drawing on international expert contributors and literature to provide the reader with as broad a knowledge-base as possible. Clear background information to support the topics discussed and quick references to sources of further information assist the busy practitioner to get the most from the book. Qualified nurses and students specialising or seeking to specialise in emergency nursing. - Publisher.
