This title is directed primarily to health care professionals outside the United States. it is a comprehensive text for nurse practitioners that integrates the required clinical skills with professional and theoretical issues in one book. It uses a systems approach to cover the most frequently presenting problems that the nurse practitioner will encounter. The scope of the book then widens to include psychological and emotional problems as well as the special needs of children and those patients with chronic health problems. Using a practical approach the content is based on current best evidence. The book has been derived from the editors' experience as a course team running the RCN Institute BSc Nurse Practitioner course in Lancaster and Carlisle.
'It is not easy to combine and co-ordinate in one volume the concepts that nurse practitioners need to address. This book goes further by looking at clinical skill, theoretical issues and professional points of view, and integrating them, so that the reader can arrive at a fully rounded concept of what it means to be a nurse practitioner in today's world... This is a thoughtful book, fully indexed and referenced, and offering readable and balanced points of view at every step of the way' Nursing Standard, Volume 20, No 30, April 5-11 2006“I would strongly recommend it to all student advanced practitioners and as an aide memoir for qualified nurse practitioners.”Sallie Buck.
