This book addresses the needs of the undergraduate nurse by presenting a series of classic case studies in nursing, in the adult and elderly population. Each case follows a standardised layout for ease of reference and includes photographs or clear line diagrams where appropriate, to illustrate key points. Each case is also accompanied by timed, structured questions with comprehensive referenced model answers to enhance the book's utility as a self-assessment tool.
