Book Description

Many nurses work as specialist practitioners within several areas of gastrointestinal medicine, including inflammatory bowel disease, stoma care, nutrition, endoscopy and counselling. There has been a steady increase in nurse-led services and gastrointestinal nursing is an expanding area. This comprehensive text lays the foundation by reviewing the anatomy and physiology underlying common conditions before covering the pathophysiology of clinical features, causes, investigation and management. Underlying this approach will be the specific nursing aspects of caring for patients with gastrointestinal conditions, covering psychosocial factors and issues such as the measurement of health related quality of life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!! 13 Jan. 2011
By Lynne
As a newly qualified nurse working on a busy surgical ward, I found this book really useful. It gives expert /simple explanations and lists nursing tasks/role for the patient and their treatment. Highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money! 6 Mar. 2013
By Matthew
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For the price this is a very small book and just provides a brief overview of the subject. My own fault for not checking the size but dor the price expected a large comprehensive book. I got just as much info from books already in my collection. Waste of money!

3.0 out of 5 stars Text is Ok but avoid Kindle version - Photos in B&W 7 July 2012
By J. R. Williamson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good intro text to GI nursing but get the paper version. For some strange reason, Kindle version is in B&W which does NOTHING for viewing the endo pics of various diseases.

UPDATE: 7/11/12 My stupid. I ordered the book and it arrived today (ridiculous cost for paperback) and again, the endo pics were black and white. Fairly useless.
