Abstract

Medical-Surgical nursing is the very foundation of the nursing degree, and focuses predominantly although not exclusively, on care in the clinical environment. The text addresses pathophysiological mechanisms of disease, and assessment and management of common and diverse conditions including respiratory problems, cardiovascular disease, cancer, gastrointestinal problems, renal and urological problems, reproductive problems, nervous system and emergency care.

There are many new contributors in the 2nd edition, representing a greater spread of academics and clinicians from across Australia and New Zealand. The text has been significantly revised to better reflect the ANZ context, with more up-to-date references and examples from evidence-based research and practice throughout. It includes a completely original chapter on 'Rural and Remote Nursing', as well as an important new chapter on Obesity as it impacts disease.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
