"This manual, the first of its kind focused on district nursing, provides the means to build competence and confidence in nurses new to the community, or developing their skills. The comprehensive and evidence-based content provides essential information for competence in key areas of district nursing." —From the Foreword, by Rosemary Cook CBE, Hon D Lett, MSc, PG Dip, RGN Director, The Queen's Nursing Institute Clinical skills are a fundamental aspect of district nursing care. The District Nursing Manual of Clinical Procedures is a practical, evidence-based manual of clinical skills which reflects the unique challenges of district nursing care within the patient's home. It provides a comprehensive resource for all district nurses, community nurses, students and healthcare professionals involved in the district nursing team, enabling them to practice competently and confidently and deliver clinically effective, person-centred care. The District Nursing Manual of Clinical Procedures addresses the complexity of district nursing care and encompasses key aspects of clinical practice, including decision making in areas that district and community nurses often struggle with or find difficult when they are on their own in a patient's home. It utilises the latest clinical research and expert clinical knowledge to address these challenges, and to provide the underlying theory and evidence for district nursing care. Key features Evidence-based manual of practical clinical skills in district nursing care Clear, user-friendly and easy to understand Contains recommendations for expert care within a patient's own home Addresses key concerns of district and community nurses working on their own within a patient's home Encompasses key aspects of district nursing care Placed in the context of person-centred care All procedures include the rationale for each action - 'why' as well as 'how' This title is also available as a mobile App from MedHand Mobile Libraries.

The Concise Encyclopedia of Biomedical Polymers and Polymeric Biomaterials presents new and selected content from the 11-volume Biomedical Polymers and Polymeric Biomaterials Encyclopedia. The carefully culled content includes groundbreaking work from the earlier published work as well as exclusive online material added since its publication in print. A diverse and global team of renowned scientists provide cutting edge information concerning polymers and polymeric biomaterials. Acknowledging the evolving nature of the field, the encyclopedia also features newly added content in areas such as tissue engineering, tissue repair and reconstruction, and biomimetic materials.
This work begins with fundamental skills covering the patient's hospital stay, specimen collection, aseptic technique and wound care, and medicines management. It then focuses on procedures related to specific body systems in which nurses have to demonstrate their competancy.
This book has been written with the novice in mind, as wound management has become a highly specialised and fascinating field over the past 15 years. This has caused much confusion for practitioners who, in the past, have viewed it as simple ' dressing changes' . It is presented as a compact reference suitable for qualified and unqualified health care workers alike. Firstly, the book aims to positively assist students of healthcare to appreciate the complexity of this vast and growing subject, so that they benefit from a clear presentation of current evidence-based knowledge and become confident enough to apply their new knowledge in practice; secondly, it may be used by qualified practitioners to consolidate their knowledge and so enhance their practice. This is a specialised practice area that transcends all patient groups, specialties and care settings. By working through the content of the book, it is important that the reader develops an understanding of the origins of wound management and how modern wound technology has evolved to reflect those origins. In summary, this book aims to provide a range of health care practitioners with a basic set of tools for starting to personally experience and enjoy the provision of high quality wound management.
