The third edition of Lewis's Medical-Surgical Nursing builds on the high calibre of content authored by an impressive pedigree of leading academics and clinical experts. It has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent changes in clinical practice in Australia and New Zealand. This local focus is strengthened by up-to-date research, data, policies, procedures and guidelines with an emphasis on current issues. Evidence-based practice forms the foundation of the text with an emphasis on the pathophysiological mechanisms of disease. Ordered by body systems, the text provides students with clear and concise guidance on the assessment and management of conditions including respiratory problems, cardiovascular disease, cancer, gastrointestinal problems, renal and urological problems, reproductive problems, movement and coordination and emergency care. The book is accompanied by an impressive suite of resources for instructors and students on Evolve (including a Test bank, image banks and PowerPoint slides).
