Book Description

19 Jun 2009 0470510714 978-0470510711 1
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.

Format:Paperback
I recommend this book for Healthcare Support Workers and Healthcare assistants who's role is to undertake a range of basic clinical skills such as TPR/BP, urinalysis and catheter care,venepuncture and cannulation. It has excellent sections on communication and psychological care which are so important to patient experience. It also makes individual responsibility and accountability clear ensuring healthcare workers only undertake skills that they are delegated and which they have appropriate training and assessment to ensure patient safety.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 4 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book great for learning about clinical skills needed to look after patients. The book went into a lot of detail about tests that are performed on patients and why they are done such as blood pressure, pulse and taking their temperature. The book was well presented and was a pleasure to read.
