Product description

This is the only book to combine an introduction to psychology with the specifics of nursing care. It covers all aspects of psychology relevant to student nurses and others training to be health care professionals. The topic based structure of the book allows it to be used across a wide range of courses and the linking of psychological theory and nursing practice is made explicit by the use of case study material and discussion points.
