Description - Advanced Renal Care by Nicola Thomas
Individuals with renal disease require continuing support and care throughout their lives from renal nurses and other members of the inter-professional renal team. "Advanced Renal Care" is for all those who work in nephrology, dialysis and transplantation as it addresses current challenges in caring for those with renal failure, and examines recent trends and likely future developments. The book also explores key issues in staff recruitment and development. It goes beyond the basic texts on renal care by discussing topical issues such as anaemia management, care of older people on dialysis, diabetes and renal failure, infection control and sexual dysfunction in renal disease.
