This comprehensive book looks at the art and science of surgical nursing. Covering many of the essential issues relevant to the care of adults undergoing surgery in a range of settings, the text explores the nature of surgical nursing in all its guises, addressing challenging contemporary issues and measuring outcomes. It also explains the principles, whichunderlie the nursing care of patients throughout their surgical journey - from assessment and diagnosis, through pre- and intra-operative care, to the post-operative recovery phase and discharge. The physiological and scientific basis of practice is set out clearly and succinctly, while complex issues of care are explored through the use of reflection activities and short case studies. The text addresses issues, which will help nurses develop their role and their philosophy of care and assist in the improvement of patient management.
