The Gale Encyclopedia of Nursing and Allied Health

Publisher: Thomson Gale
1st edition - December 15, 2001
Hardcover: 2762 pages
ISBN-10: 0787649341
ISBN-13: 978-0787649340
 

Designed for students of nursing and the allied health professions, caregivers, and the educated lay reader, this five-volume set includes over 850 signed articles on various aspects of nursing.
Covered here are nursing and allied healthcare education and training, current health issues (viewpoints, professional implications), tests and procedures (descriptions, precautions, aftercare), and equipment/tools (descriptions, operation, healthcare team roles), as well as diseases (causes, diagnosis, treatment) and human biology/body systems (functions, role in human health). Although there is some overlap, particularly in the last two categories with The Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine (LJ 2/15/99; 2d ed. 2001), this text focuses primarily on the interests of nurses and allied health professionals.
