Primary Care Case Studies for Nurse Practitioners
Practice nurses and nurse practitioners working alongside general practitioners are required to see and treat patients with a variety of minor and complex conditions. They therefore need skills in history-taking, physical assessment, diagnosing, prescribing and managing long-term conditions. It is assumed that nurses who read this book will have experience in managing the care of babies, children, well young people, people for whom English is not their first language, people with mental health problems and older people with multiple health problems. These case studies are loosely based on interactions that the author has had with patients in Primary Care.
