Review quote

This edition has been updated with the most current references and resources and includes a new chapter, written by patients and partners of those with kidney disease, that addresses patient and caregiver involvement in renal care. When used in addition to hands-on experience, this book should give nursing or allied healthcare professionals the confidence that they have the most current and complete knowledge base necessary to fulfill their crucial roles in this specialty. (Doody s, 13 February 2015) This book is for all nursing staff including student nurses caring for the renal patient. This would be valuable for allied health professionals such as specialist pharmacists and renal dietitians. It would also be apt for a junior doctor requiring further information. (Nursing Times, 16October 2014) The 3rd edition of Renal Nursing provides a very good introduction tonephrology nursing for the beginner tointermediate practitioner. Get it if youare new to our specialty or if you areundertaking post graduate renal studiesand are looking for a general renal nursing text. Renal Society of Australasia Journal, Oct 08
