Accurate clinical observations are the key to good patient care and fundamental to nursing practice. To be fully competent in these basic skills, nurses need to understand not only how and why procedures are performed, but also how results are affected for example by variation in technique or the health status of the patient. The Biological Basis of Nursing: Clinical Observation is a unique text which integrates explanations of essential nursing procedures with the biological knowledge that underpins practice. Essential reading for all students preparing for clinical practice in nursing.
