Fully updated for its third edition, the Oxford Handbook of Primary Care and Community Nursing is the essential guide to caring for patients in primary care and in community settings. Concise and comprehensive, the book provides the reader with both evidence-based clinical knowledge as well as the organizational structure of community health services.
Chapters range from common adult and paediatric health problems, to more specific targeted advice for service users with extra needs and people with long-term conditions. The handbook includes information on how health and social care services are organised and funded, from common technical care procedures to complex situations, alongside detailed aspects of health promotion in adults, children, and adolescents.
With new topics on consultation frameworks and models, supporting young people in their transition to the adult services, and female genital mutilation, all clinical guidelines, epidemiology, and statistics have been revised to reflect developments since the previous edition.
Providing an accessible and instant resource for everyday nursing, and a benchmark of good practice, the Oxford Handbook of Primary Care and Community Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for all health care professionals working in the primary care and community setting.
