Essential Coloproctology for Nurses Paperback / softback
As a result of the prevalence of colorectal diseases, coloproctology has developed enormously as a specialist field for nurses and there have been many advances in treatment, surgical techniques, screening programmes and nursing led patient services.
As this field of surgery evolves, the educational needs of nurses specializing in this area continue to grow.
This innovative text, a collaboration between specialists in the UK and the USA, and the first textbook written specifically for nurses, covers these exciting developments and also examines those factors that are driving the changes in the range and delivery of services offered to patients with colorectal disease.
The book will provide nurses with the knowledge to make a diagnosis, initiate treatment and support patients and their families throughout treatment for these embarrassing and socially isolating conditions.
