So you can find the information you need without delay, the book is clearly laid out with one topic per page, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages for writing notes, observations and local protocols allow your handbook to be customised to meet your specific needs. All this is available at your fingertips, in a pocket-sized handbook with a hard-wearing plastic cover. Written by practising nurses and checked by subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Adult Nursing will be an invaluable companion to both practising and student nurses.
