5.0 out of 5 stars Bible for all nursing staff caring for renal patients, 23 Mar 2014
This review is from: Renal Nursing (Kindle Edition)
Title: Renal Nursing
Author: Nicola Thomas
Publisher: Wiley Blackwell, 4th edition 2014

Description:

This is a concise evidence based text book for all nurses working in renal nursing. This has been updated and is now in its 4th edition. This is a very comprehensive book covering all aspects of kidney and renal disorders. It provides the skills and knowledge to give support, treatment and high standard of care.

Highlights:

This has been updated and if I were working in this speciality this would be my bible. The anatomy and physiology sections are in-depth, written well and flows easily to be easily understood by the reader. The diagrams are well set out.
In each chapter there are learning outcomes which sets the reader onto the right path immediately.
I found the history of dialysis and transplantation a fascinating and enlightening read.
The section on patient and carer involvement was an interesting read, including case studies and the use of support groups on social media.
I found the chapter on quality improvement and patient safety a welcome part of the whole process not only acknowledging the patient but safety and best practice.

Strengths and weaknesses:

This is written by a renal nursing consultant and senior lecturer in the UK. This is written for the UK health care setting.
This book equips the nurse working in a renal environment to use this as a tool to provide the practical care of their patients.
It is well written and has up to date referencing. Reading though the book there are no weaknesses this covers every aspect of renal nursing – even exploring the illegal aspects of people selling their organs.

Potential Readers:

This book is for all nursing staff including student nurses caring for the renal patient. This would be valuable for allied health professionals such as specialist pharmacists and renal dietitians. This would also be apt for a junior doctor requiring further information.
This book needs to be on every renal department shelf so that staff can ensure the highest standards for their patients.
