The evolution of day surgery has heralded a new era of medical, anaesthetic and nursing knowledge, skills and practice. Day Surgery: Contemporary Approaches to Nursing Care explores the familiar concepts within nursing, such as evidence-based practice, patient-centred communication, management, practice development and models of care, and uses these theoretical constructs to provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary services and nursing approaches within day surgery. This book is written with the intention of providing nurses working in day surgery with a comprehensive applied text that can be used as a reference when caring for patients.
Includes bibliographical references and index.

From Doody's reviews: This is a well presented summary of common surgical procedures. The purpose is to give a visual and organizational approach for young clinicians who will be faced with assisting with these procedures on their clinical rotations. The goal is very worthwhile as students commonly see only the actual procedure, but do not get exposed to the organizational aspects. This is a tremendous asset for students, residents, and nurses who are requested to assist during procedures.
