The role and function of the nurse is rapidly changing. Some nurses are now required to undertake clinical diagnosis of the patient, a responsibility traditionally undertaken by a doctor. Clinical Diagnosis helps prepare nurses to fulfill this role, providing them with the skills and underpinning knowledge to make clinical diagnoses of patients effectively. Each chapter follows the same layout for each symptom or sign, exploring the definition, causes, history, precipitating factors, associated signs and symptoms, important considerations, relevant clinical examination, and investigations and tests.

  • The first UK text to explore clinical diagnosis from a nursing perspective
  • In the Essential Clinical Skills for Nurses series
  • Written by an authority in the field
  • Concise, accessible, and evidence-based
