Product Description


"This is an innovative way of providing evidence that encompasses the opinions of nurses and patients, and suggests that knowledge gained from them can be used to formulate topics for further research." (Nursing Management, March 2009)

From reviews of earlier editions

"This comprehensive, evidence–based book is bursting with information and guidance on clinical nursing procedures...well written and an excellent resource for nurses, reflecting evidence–based procedures used in the clinical setting, as well as developing the nursing agenda of the future." (Nursing Standard)

"The Royal Marsden Hospital Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures has established itself as an important book for clinical practice...this manual undoubtedly responds to a clear demand from practitioners for a user–friendly, accessible resource on a wide range of clinical procedures.
This is a valuable text that I would expect to find in all practice settings, clincial skills laboratories and university libraries. It should be readily available to nurses and students wherever they practice." (Journal of Clinical Nursing)

"The Royal Marsden Hospital have continued their tradition of producing an excellent Manual which is useful to all levels of nurses, as well as student nurses, and will no doubt be adopted by many Trusts as their own procedure Manual. In summary, a good text to have in each clinical area and for use in nursing education." (Journal of Advanced Nursing)


"This book has become a much loved and respected resource for generations of nurses over the last twenty years. Once again, with this Sixth Edition, busy nurses are helped to give excellent evidence–based nursing care to patients who, these days, may spend a shorter time in hospital but require increased amounts of informed care. Like nursing, it provides ongoing quality round the clock and round the world."
Sylvia Denton OBE, President of the Royal College of Nursing
