Description : Nursing children and young people is increasingly complex requiring nurses to apply their knowledge and skills to a wide scope of illnesses and situations. The challenges to nurses to analyse, reflect on different perspectives and then adapt practices to the benefit of service users are reflected in this book. Each scenario in this text is created based on real life cases and practice. The 23 cases connect knowledge with practice and guide you through the anatomy and physiology and the physical and psychological responses to stressors, which are then linked to intervention decisions. Cases include: • Providing care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions • Acutely ill children including those with asthma, and an infant with pyrexia and febrile convulsions • Long term conditions including diabetes, renal disease and the transfer to adult services • Those who are critically ill such as a child with typhoid fever and a toddler with a head injury • Supporting emotional and mental health in anorexia and autistic spectrum disorder • Promoting healthy lifestyles, considering obesity and risky behaviour • Care for children with trauma, including a child with a learning disability Remaining vigilant for indicators of safeguarding concern, encouraging self-care, and promoting mental resilience are all incorporated, with examples from a range of care environments. Calculation exercises are interspersed to keep these skills sharp. This Case Book is an ideal learning resource, tailored to help nurses learn in a focused way about practice and excel, whether on placements, in academic work, or in professional practice. "Developed from a partnership between a University Research Group and an NHS Trust, this practical children’s nursing case textbook bridges theory and practice by presenting 23 case scenarios on complex, sensitive and difficult to manage clinical situations in an accessible and user-friendly manner. The inbuilt activities, calculation exercises, question and answer format and extra resources make this an excellent interactive resource for nurses to engage in critical thinking and reflection about each case." Dr. Veronica Lambert, Senior Lecturer Children's Nursing, Dublin City University, Ireland "This book will be useful for nurses in the UK who work with children and families in a variety of settings. Its format based on case studies and 'what would you do' and 'what do you need to do' scenarios will make it a useful tool for teaching clinical care for children and families." Professor Linda Shields, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Indigenous Health, Charles Sturt University, Bathurst, Australia "What Tony Long has achieved is to produce a textbook with contributions from esteemed practicing children’s nurses which gives enhanced credibility to each of the case studies. Tony and his colleagues have created these case studies to help children’s and young people’s nurses fully understand the complexities of the needs of both children and their families or carers during their healthcare trajectory. The contributors to this textbook fully appreciate that the specificity of knowledge and its application to practice across the parameters of healthcare delivery and across the life course healthcare journey of the child, from the neonatal period through to adolescent transition to adult healthcare, requires a specific knowledge source. This book reflects the reality that children’s nurses work in many areas from primary care through to tertiary care, from neonatal intensive care through to child and adolescent mental healthcare. Each of the case studies provides a focal point for this knowledge source and each seeks to illuminate good practice based on sound empirical evidence. The burden of ill health in childhood can only be alleviated if the nurses who deliver care to children and young people fully understand the complexities of ill health across the age continuum. This is because of what can happen during childhood, from conception onwards, ranging from obesity, heart disease and mental ill health, though to educational attainment and future economic status. Professor Long and his colleagues are to be congratulated in producing this new book which will address each of these cognate areas but which also never forgets the primary mission of the children’s nurse which is to uphold their mantra of 'the child first and always'." Alan Glasper, Emeritus Professor of children’s and young people’s nursing at the University of Southampton, UK

Description : "A great book written by a truly medical family ... This book will prove invaluable to the student paramedic and a great aid to the practicing paramedic ... The case studies are thought provoking and give an opportunity for students to learn about situations they will encounter during their careers and experienced paramedics and practitioners the opportunity to reflect on similar cases and question their practice ... I would highly recommend this book." Paul Bates (Paramedic), Higher Education Programme Manager, London Ambulance Service NHS Trust, UK "Individuals new to pre-hospital care will find this text well structured and clear. The informative introduction and subsequent case studies are written in an easy to read question and answer style. These provide a starting point for the reader to undertake further focused reading and investigation. A helpful text for students who are new to caring for patients, in the pre-hospital environment." Amanda Blaber, Senior Lecturer, University of Brighton, UK "This book presents a series of medical vignettes of varying complexity. It discusses the differential diagnosis and clinical care, offering important background knowledge to assist the Paramedic in following the best clinical pathway. Fellows and Fellows provide the vital link between the classroom and reality, removing the mysticism from the complex and ever changing world of pre-hospital care" Dr David Zideman, Clinical Lead – Emergency Medical Care, London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games "This is a great introductory text … The language is easy to read and does not use over complicated medical jargon, which can be off putting for novice students (and experienced ambulance personnel alike!) whilst introducing the reader to ‘ambulance language’. The comprehensive glossary is an unexpected find and a fabulous revision tool, explaining many difficult medical concepts and conditions." Emma Redwood, State Registered Paramedic, University of Northampton, UK "Until now there have been very few books that outline the importance of all stages of the care received by a patient. This book fills that gap without overwhelming those new to the paramedic profession. In addition it works well as a supplementary book for anyone working in the pre-hospital field to remind them the importance of seeking a differential diagnosis and not jumping to any conclusions ... A good book for paramedic students to read and enjoy." Ruth Lambert, Student Paramedic, University of Northampton, UK This accessible book is designed to help both practising and student paramedics prepare to deal with 25 of the most commonly seen pre-hospital care scenarios, as well as to revise for practical exams. Part of a new Case Book series, the book starts with a description of the patient history and examination, then challenges you to spot important signs, determine a likely diagnosis and make important management decisions. This technique helps to cement prior knowledge and teach both scientific and practical knowledge, both vital for today’s paramedic. By looking at the journey of the patient and paramedic, the authors provide a more complete understanding of the care pathway, helping you to be aware of signs of severe illness and develop safe practice. In addition, the book:Encourages you to develop knowledge of pathophysiology, pharmacology and out of hospital emergency treatment plans to point of handover at definitive careCovers a wide range of scenarios, from everyday situations to more complexContains practical cases, checklists, clinical tools, key information boxes and clear answers to clinical questions The book is written by a unique father and daughter author team, with the complementary perspectives of a paramedic educator and a student.

Description : This case book is the ideal text for Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs), as well as student ODPs and nurses preparing to work in perioperative care. Delivering individualised, holistic and evidence-based care can be challenging in the perioperative setting, requiring the practitioner to apply specialist clinical knowledge to each individual patient. This text presents 20 interactive case studies that will support the reader in assimilating a wide range of professional knowledge in order to develop a comprehensive plan of care for patients they encounter. The practical cases: • Demonstrate how care will vary depending on the patient’s physiological assessment and their personal, social, cultural and emotional needs • Will consolidate the reader’s learning around pathophysiology, pharmacology, assessment skills and clinical skills • Include common clinical procedures as well as those that are more complex and require a deeper analysis of the evidence in order to improve patient care. • Use “Stop and Think” boxes to encourage readers to reflect on key points within the case study, in order to develop their own knowledge and assist in their CPD This text will support all learners, at both pre- and post-registration level as they develop their knowledge of perioperative care. Its goal is to help the practitioner deliver excellent and confident care in perioperative practice and in other healthcare settings. “Although clearly targeted at the student Operating Department Practitioner, Abbott and Wordsworth have produced a learning resource that any learner in the perioperative environment will find both informative and a useful learning aid. The editors have set out the twenty patient case studies in a sequence that allows the student to work through them as their course and competence progresses, although students can dip into the case studies in any order that supports their current clinical placement. The section introducing perioperative care is essential reading for any perioperative practitioner, with an up-to-date introduction to the latest concepts of teamwork and human factors in patient safety. Coupled with the patient-centred focus of the case studies this provides any reader with an understanding of the changing approach to patient care in the perioperative environment.” Bill Kilvington, President, College of Operating Department Practitioners, UK “I have read this book several times and found that the chapter contents are excellent. This book will be useful for ODPs and theatre nurses, it will enhance their knowledge and skills and may also enhance their abilities to work in operating departments and care well for patients. The book covers preoperative care, intraoperative care and postoperative care which is essential for all practitioners working in operating departments. The content of this book is very informative and will be of great use to both students and qualified practitioners. I find it very impressive and I envisage it to be very useful to all theatre practitioners!” Paul Wicker, formerly Head of Perioperative Studies, Edge Hill University, UK and Visiting Professor, Nanjing University, China.
