Product description

Health care and nursing practice continue to change at a rapid pace, and nurses need access to up-to-date information from the many areas of nursing practice and other health care disciplines. This pocket dictionary is the ideal companion to nursing practice and contains over 7000 relevant medical and nursing terms clearly defined together with 90 clear illustrations. In addition to this, it also includes several appendices of useful clinical reference material for easy access including normal values, nutritional guidelines and useful addresses. All of the entries have been reviewed and updated, and many of the particularly relevant issues such as research, quality and information technology have been expanded to reflect their importance in the changing health care environment.
