Each intervention is presented within a nursing problem which states the nature of the patient problem and the goal. The available evidence base is outlined and related to the problem before the procedure is explained in straightforward terms. Experienced nurses tips have been integrated into the procedures, so alerting the learner to anticipate individual patients needs or anxieties, or improve upon their own performance. Each chapter concludes with key texts to supplement the procedural steps with more theory. Where applicable, specific terms have been defined to aid the learner in developing their own vocabulary of specialist words, and to remind them that nursing jargon is also incomprehensible to patients.
