This new edition of a best-selling and trusted dictionary has been fully
updated and revised to take into account recent developments in nursing
practice and related fields. Though updates to this edition cover many
areas, there is a particular focus upon risk assessement tools and terms
relating to the Mental Health Act 2005, as well as recent NHS
initiatives to improve care standards.
Written by medical and nursing specialists, and offering 10,200 clear and concise entries on the theory and practice of nursing, the dictionary provides comprehensive coverage of the ever-expanding vocabulary of nursing professions. As well as nursing-specific terms, there are also many entries in the fields of medicine, anatomy, physiology, ethics, psychiatry, nutrition, statistics, and pharmacology. More than 100 helpful illustrations and 18 appendices covering the Code of Conduct 2008, the calculation of drug dosages, essential skill clusters, religion and nursing practice, recommended alcohol intake, and much more, help to make this an invaluable reference tool for all nursing students and professionals.
