Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing
Edited by Glenys Boxwell
Routledge – 2000 – 496 pages
Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing is an information-packed, evidence-based text for experienced neonatal nurses, paediatric nurses and midwives caring for sick newborn babies. Clearly written by practising neonatal nurses and teachers, it concentrates on the common problems occurring within the neonatal intensive care unit, enabling nurses to recognise, rationalise and remedy these problems using both a multi-systems and an evidence-based approach. In addition, the text includes case studies and exercises to promote critical thinking and decision-making, and allowing nurses to link knowledge to practice.
User-friendly and well sign-posted with a glossary of terms, this text is essential reading for nurses and midwives caring for sick newborn babies within the intensive care area of the neonatal unit and also for nurses undertaking qualifications in neonatal nursing.
'I will certainly recommend this book to my learners on the ENB 405 as essential reading for up to date knowledge on evidence based practice in neonatal care.' - Liz Crathern, Nurse Lecturer, University of Leeds
'This book is an affordable piece of work that is excellent value for money. With its emphasis on linking evidence-based theory to the daily practice of neonatal intensive care nursing, it makes valuable and relevant reading for all those involved in nursing sick neonates, and therefore comes highly recommended.' - Anita Jarvis, Nurse Education Today
