Assisting both practising and student nurses with decision-making skills from the patient assessment stage through to post procedure/operation nursing care, this handbook provides a wealth of useful information on the aetiology of kidney disease, assessment and diagnostic processes, and the available treatments.
An indispensable resource, it covers caring for patients with a wide range of conditions, including chronic kidney disease and established renal failure. Additional information on treating patients waiting for, or undergoing dialysis or transplant surgery, and those requiring end of life care is also included.
Taking a multi-professional approach to the care and management of renal patients, the Oxford Handbook of Renal Nursing is an essential tool for all renal nurses, studying and practising, as well as dieticians, pharmacists, social workers, counsellors and researchers who specialise in renal care.
