GYNAECOLOGICAL NURSING is a comprehensive practical guide to many women health issues, written by nurses for nurses. This is a concise, clinically focused text on disease and disorders, which are unique to or are more common, in women. Medical technology is moving forward with resulting changes in practice and new techniques. Nurses need to be aware of these changes and advances and maintain our knowledge base. We need to be able to provide sound, accurate and consistent information. To maintain the trust patients have in nurses we must maintain an up to date knowledge and feel confident in this knowledge. Therefore this book provides thorough coverage of the latest medical advances and new techniques but with a sensitive holistic approach based on the requirements of nurses.View full description
