Description

Perioperative Nursing, An Introduction 3rd edition provides a solid foundation for both undergraduate and post-graduate students, and novice perioperative nurses embarking on their career.

Presented in two sections: Professional Practice and Clinical Practice, the text provides an overview of the key concepts, challenges and scope of practice across a range of perioperative environments including: anaesthetics, intraoperative and postanaesthetic recovery care, day surgery and evolving perioperative practices outside of hospital settings.

New patient scenarios woven through the text provide the context for the reader to engage in reflective thinking on the patient journey and place the novice practitioner ‘into the workplace’ to exemplify practice points, rationales and clinical decision making.

Underpinned with the most recent evidence-based practice, research, standards and guidelines, this highly respected text continues to be an indispensable resource for perioperative nurses.
