An Introduction to Orthopaedic Nursing, 5th Edition

The new edition of An Introduction to Orthopaedic Nursing is here!

The target audience for this manual is the bedside nurse providing direct patient care in a clinical setting. It is a solid reference for others in the continuum of care - clinical nurse specialists, bedside care providers, nurse practitioners, educators, and students. This manual continues to be a learning tool for nurses new to the orthopaedic environment, as well as those who wish to brush up on less frequently seen conditions. It is a solid reference for a team to develop competencies, policies and protocols.

This updated textbook provides a valuable overview of musculoskeletal anatomy and neurovascular assessment, common adult orthopaedic conditions, pain management, common orthopaedic complications, and appropriate nursing assessment and care.
