Oxford Handbook of Trauma and Orthopaedic Nursing
Nurses must deliver up-to-date, clinically effective, evidence-based care across a range of settings and develop nursing services to meet changing demands. The revised and expanded Oxford Handbook of Trauma and Orthopaedic Nursing 2nd edition is tailored to provide the essential knowledge nurses need; at their fingertips when they need it. This handbook will guide the reader systematically through the care of patients with a wide range of musculoskeletal problems. Each chapter contains the up to date evidence-based guidelines covering a continuum from birth to death, covering everything from emergency care, rehabilitation, discharge, and end of life care. It now includes new topics such as pharmacological alternatives to blood transfusion, disability and enabling environments, hip articulations, and health promotion. Providingkey summaries of common problems and essential issues, it will provide both an invaluable reference for trauma and orthopaedic nurses, as well as a precise, targeted guide for nurses from other specialties caring for patients with musculoskeletal problems.
