    Description

    The holistic perspective evident in this key text reflects the challenges presented to A&E nurses by the wide range of patient conditions encountered in Emergency Care. The strength of this book lies in its clinical focus and its practical 'how to' approach, combined with sound evidence-based rationales for care.

    This is an essential text for all A & E staff, including those who are new to the A & E department and Minor Injury Unit who are not taking formal study.
