Clinical Nursing Practices

Guidelines for Evidence-Based Practice

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is a well-known text that provides guidelines for over 40 common nursing procedures carried out by carers in a variety of settings. The development of competence in these practices is one of the most important aspects of pre-registration programmes, and this is one of the few UK-based texts that takes an educational approach to these practices as opposed to a purely procedure-driven approach. As in previous editions, the emphasis is on a holistic approach with the recognition that each patient is a unique individual. Each procedure contains rationale and information for patient education in addition to step by step guidance.
