Good book but a little old fashioned!
on 11 February 2011
This book will be very helpful to many students, however there appears to be a consistent lack of understanding of the role of the registered nurse - Yvonne constantly refers to the doctor, dentist or pharmacist as being a prescriber of medications yet nurses also prescribe medications, and in a care context community nurses in particular have had this opportunity since 1992. So her comments on page 354 that nurses can only supply medicines under the direction of the doctor is misleading and inaccurate.
