'I was very impressed by this textbook. It reads very well, is easy to follow and is suitable for students within the common foundation programme. Allowing these students to see alternative aspects of other branches which they may not have seen within practice is valuable and the DVD material naturally adds to the learning and helps to show theory within practice' - Conleth Kelly, Lecturer in The Faculty of Health and Social Care, The University of Chester. "Clinical Skills: The Essence of Caring" is an innovative new textbook and integrated Media Tool package which makes teaching and learning nursing interactive! Based on the "Essence of Care", this book covers the core clinical skills curriculum and takes a holistic approach to the importance of delivering excellent nursing care. Key features of this title are as mentioned below. Comprehensive coverage - an accessible account of all fundamental skills is provided, including Record Keeping, Communication and Pressure Ulcers. Pedagogy - a multitude of activity and case study boxes, a glossary, self-test questions and 25 patient scenarios really bring the topics to life.
