A Clinical Guide for Nurse PractitionersBy
- Katie Barnes, RGN, RSCN BSc(Hons), MSc, MPH, CPNP, Lecturer - Child Health, Certified Paediatric Nurse Practitioner Suffolk College, Ipswich
The book contains practical information pertaining to a variety of issues that are intrinsic to paediatric advanced nursing practice.
With the current government moves to producing a seam-free, integrated healthcare system, more and more responsibility for primary assessment will fall to the nurses in the primary care sector. Children form the largest part of the daily surgery attendees and most healthcare practitioners are fairly nervous when treating children. This book will provide a 'bible' for competent practise.
