About this title:

Oxford Handbooks in Nursing

The Oxford Handbook of Adult Nursing is written by nurses, for nurses, to provide concise, practical, and expert advice on all aspects of the nurse's role.

Designed as a comprehensive and reliable guide to the care of adults, the second edition of this central series title has been completely rewritten by a brand-new team of expert authors for today’s nurse. Brought fully up to date with the latest NMC nursing competencies and professional knowledge, it provides concise and comprehensive summaries of everything you need to deliver appropriate nursing care and interventions, covering key nursing values and standards, communication, dealing with diverse clinical populations, clinical practice and decision-making, and professional development.

The role of the nurse, not only as a provider of clinical care, but also as a leader, manager and member of a broad multidisciplinary team, is fully detailed. Clinical nursing practice is addressed using a systems-based approach, providing an overview of clinical conditions, investigations, and treatments, including frequently prescribed medicines, while highlighting key nursing practice considerations.

Each chapter of the handbook lists useful sources of further information, primarily easily accessible on-line resources. To help you achieve the best possible results for your patients, the authors offer a wealth of recommendations, guidance and information from their years of experience.

Key points:

  • A must-have reference guide for all adult nurses and nursing students in both hospital and community settings
  • Designed to support nurses in their clinical thinking and decision-making
  • Reflects the four domains of the NMC nursing competencies: professional nursing values, communication and interpersonal skills, nursing practice and decision-making and leadership, management and teamwork
  • Addresses the philosophy, principles and practice of adult nursing in an accessible and convenient format
  • Recognizes the inter-relatedness of physical and mental functioning and wellbeing
  • Practice section takes a systems approach, with each chapter giving an overview of clinical conditions, investigations and treatments – including frequently prescribed medicines – and highlighting relevant nursing practice considerations
  • Brings together specialist and generalist clinical nurses, nursing students, educators and researchers with substantial experience in adult nursing practice, education and research

New to this edition:

  • Entirely new text with brand new chapters including; values led nursing research, culturally sensitive communication, risk assessment, leadership, and public involvement in healthcare
  • Recognizes that the modern profession of caring and compassionate nursing has shifted from delivering nursing interventions to working with people and families in the management of health conditions
  • Rewritten to reflect how modern nurses relate to people, engage critically with professional knowledge, and organize and deliver appropriate nursing care and interventions

Together with the complementary Oxford Handbook of Clinical Skills in Adult Nursing, this handbook provides nursing students and general adult nurses with a robust framework for thinking about, and practicing, safe and compassionate values-based nursing. Whether the reader requires a comprehensive introduction to adult nursing or a reliable resource to dip into when the need arises, the Oxford Handbook of Adult Nursing will be an invaluable companion for years to come.

Editors: Maria Flynn and Dave Mercer
