Filled with practical advice from experienced nurses and up-to-date clinical information, this new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Musculoskeletal Nursing is the invaluable guide for all nurses and allied health professionals working with patients who have rheumatological and musculoskeletal conditions. Written to ensure that a nurse in any care environment will have the core information they require at their fingertips, this Handbook is split into three sections: musculoskeletal conditions and their management; clinical issues; and nursing care issues including treatment, nursing management, and tools. Management approaches have been fully updated since the first edition, and the changing healthcare environment and available treatments have been considered, alongside the move towards patient self-management and self-care. This Handbook also addresses the increasing demand for guidance in relation to musculoskeletal conditions, as the growing elderly and chronic disease populations needs for healthcare continue. Featuring brand new chapters on the patient's perspective, nurse-led clinics, and public health awareness, the Oxford Handbook of Musculoskeletal Nursing second edition is a practical and comprehensive guide to help the reader reach the best possible results for their patients.
