Patient's journey format drives new edition of vital student nurse manual
Date:4/4/2011

The eighth student edition of The Royal Marsden Hospital Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures has just been launched, with an exciting new format that organises 15 key chapters into four key stages of patient care. It also includes new content on areas such as risk management and preparing patients for diagnostic investigations.

Written and edited by nurses from the world-renowned UK centre of excellence, the Manual provides additional headings to make the text even more accessible and this edition includes many more colour photos and diagrams.

It used by students all over the world to ensure their practice is evidence-based and effective.

Although it has been written primarily for UK students, it is also popular in countries like Canada and Australia, which have similar healthcare systems. The Manual also provides a valuable introduction to clinical procedures for overseas nurses coming to work in the UK, from countries such as India, Poland, Romania, Australia and the Philippines.

The latest student edition, which provides essential clinical updates since the seventh edition was published in 2008, is once again edited by two renowned nursing experts, Lisa Dougherty, Nurse Consultant in Intravenous Therapy at The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, and Sara Lister, Assistant Chief Nurse and Head of The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation.

"More than 80 highly experienced nurses have contributed to this invaluable reference source, which provides nursing students with the underlying theory and evidence they need to deliver clinically effective patient-focused care" say the Editors. "We believe this will provide them with the confidence they need to become safe, informed and skilled practitioners."

It has been welcomed by Dame Christine Beasley, Chief Nursing Officer, Department of Health, who says: "This is a gold standard textbook for nurses. It helps to equip them with the knowledge and skills which enable them to deliver high quality care in the key areas that matter to patients. The evidence-base which supports this work is extensive and will ensure that nurses can be confident when using this manual that they are learning from innovative and cutting-edge services."

And Shelley Dolan, Chief Nurse at The Royal Marsden, has described it as vital reading for all nursing students. "More than ever in 2011, nurses need to be able to assure the public, patients and their families that care is based on the best available evidence" she says. "The Manual provides students with that vital information in a clear, concise and user-friendly way."

The format of the new manual is based around the four stages of the patient's hospital experience:

  1. Managing the patient journey: the context of nursing; assessment, discharge and end of life care; infection prevention and control and risk management.
  2. Supporting the patient with human functioning: communication; elimination; moving and positioning; nutrition, fluid balance and blood transfusion; patient comfort and respiratory care.
  3. Supporting the patient through the diagnostic process: interpreting diagnostic tests and observations.
  4. Supporting the patient through treatment: medicines management; perioperative care and wound management.

Other key features include:

  • Clear, user-friendly, compact and portable
  • Key evidence-based procedures, with the rationale for each action
  • Evidence graded to help students assess its validity
  • Includes multiple-choice questions to help students test their knowledge
  • Accompanying student companion site with interactive multiple choice questions
  • Online edition available from July 2011

Copies of the 1136-page Manual, published by Wiley-Blackwell in partnership with The Royal Marsden Foundation NHS Trust, are available from www.wiley.com and good book shops. The eighth edition of the professional version will be launched in July 2011.
