This is the latest edition of what has become a popular and enduring nursing textbook. It is a short textbook of medicine written by medical experts, but read by nurses. Nurses have consistently found this book invaluable because of the level at which the text is pitched. It has been written in consultation with nurses and covers exactly the medical knowledge that they require.These features make it still an ideal medical text for nurses:
Includes the medical knowledge nurses need
New team of contributors to widen input
Written in consultation with nurses to ensure appropriateness of information
New format and typeface - to increase readability
