Clinical Skills for Healthcare Assistants is an accessible, easy to read guide, outlining the fundamental and core skills integral to clinical practice. Divided into three sections, the first looks at fundamental skills applicable to all staff, such as accountability, communication and record keeping. Section two explores core clinical skills for example respiratory care, pulse, blood glucose management, catheter care, and fluid balance. Section three outlines complex clinical skills that require more in-depth training and may be restricted to specialist areas of practice, such as medication, and intravenous cannulation. Each chapter follows the same easy to use structure, starting with the aims and objectives of the chapter, followed by the explanation of why the skill is performed, relevant anatomy and physiology, related aspects and terminology, how to perform the skill and common problems. Aimed primarily at healthcare assistants, this will also be a useful resource for newly qualified practitioners and students in health and social care.
