Written in an accessible, user-friendly style, this introduction provides a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to the care of the patient with a urological problem. The book uses the structures of the genito-urinary tract as a framework and starting with a top-down approach, describes the anatomy, physiology, function and dysfunction of the kidney and ureters, bladder, prostate, penis and urethra, and the testicle. Each chapter describes the nursing care and psychological needs of the patient. There are specialist chapters covering paediatric disorders, gender reassignment, erectile dysfunction and catheter care.
