Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Nursing  Comments Off on Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing
Nov 042019
 

The role of the gastrointestinal (GI) nurse has changed considerably over recent years. The development of endoscopic equipment has resulted in a demand for skilled nurses to perform procedures which, in the past, were carried out by doctors. In addition, nurses now commonly perform diagnostic tests and prescribe specific drugs in gastroenterology, and the widespread recognition of the need for psychosocial support for gastrointestinal patients, in areas such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), has seen a large increase in the number of GI nurse consultants, nurse specialists, and nurse practitioners. GI nurses work with a wide range of patients from those suffering from minor and acute gastrointestinal disorders, through chronic conditions, to those requiring major surgery and treatment for malignant disease.

The Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing summarizes the current state of knowledge in gastrointestinal nursing and provides user-friendly, evidence-based guidelines on the management of patietns with gastrointestinal disorders. Organized into three sections covering the principles of gastrointestinal nursing, the sections of the gut, and specific disorders of the digestive system, this handbook offers a wealth of information on how to plan, implement, manage, and evaluate nursing care for gastrointestinal patients, whether in the pediatric or adult setting. Topics featured include nutrition, pain management, complementary therapies, prescribing in GI nursing and emergencies.

So you can find the information you need without delay, the book is clearly laid out with one topic per double page spread, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages for writing notes, observations and local protocols allow your handbook to be customised to meet your specific needs. All this is available at your fingertips, in a pocket-sized handbook with hard-wearing plastic covers.

Written by practicing nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Gastrointestinal Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion for practicing nurses, and for all health care professionals who are involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disorders.

Management of Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders in Children: Biopsychosocial Concepts for Clinical Practice

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology  Comments Off on Management of Functional Gastrointestinal Disorders in Children: Biopsychosocial Concepts for Clinical Practice
Oct 302019
 

A substantial body of literature exists on functional gastrointestinal disorders in children and on the bio-psycho-social model of clinical practice. However, the integration of these concepts into the management of children with functional disorders remains poorly defined. A satisfactory clinical outcome often depends on the clinician`s ability to discern not only the biological factors in illness, but also the unique cognitive and emotional needs that pediatric patients bring to the task of healing. This book further defines bio-psycho-social theory with respect to six groups of functional disorders and illustrates, through clinical examples, concepts of management developed during 45 years of practice. This book is aimed at pediatricians, family practitioners, pediatric mental health practitioners, pediatric nurse practitioners and pediatric gastroenterologists.

Clinical Pancreatology for Practising Gastroenterologists and Surgeons

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology  Comments Off on Clinical Pancreatology for Practising Gastroenterologists and Surgeons
Oct 142019
 

Most patients suffering from pancreatic diseases are managed by general internists, gastroenterologists and/or surgeons in non-specialized centers. Basic and clinical research in pancreatology is continuously leading to changes in the management of pancreatic diseases, but these advances are applied to the clinical practice almost exclusively in specialized centers by specialized groups.The books and journals currently available are directed at pancreatologists and the information does not reach most general clinicians and surgeons who treat patients suffering from pancreatic diseases. The aim of this book is to provide practising gastroenterologists and surgeons with clear information regarding the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic diseases.
