Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Margaret A Holder, PhD (University of North Florida Brooks College of Health)
Description: This is a completely updated and revised edition (third edition published in 2006) offering guidelines in the management of common illnesses seen in primary care. It provides easily accessible, up-to-date information at a basic level for a wide range of nursing professionals.
Purpose: This U.K. book is intended to equip nurses who provide care in an expanded role that is quite different from that of the recent past with recent, reliable information on current practice. This new edition meets the objectives for nurses practicing in the National Health Service, a rapidly changing environment.
Audience: The audience includes practice nurses, nurse practitioners, health visitors, midwives, and school nurses. For U.S. readers, it would be a useful basic reference for new primary care nurse practitioners and office nurses.
Features: The book covers a wide range of what can be considered minor illness care including assessment, testing, prescribing, and referral needs. The formulary is clear and concise for minor illness care and uses the British National Formulary, but it translates well for use in the U.S. With the book comes a 6-month subscription to the National Minor Illness Centre, a useful tool providing real-time updates of care, members' forums and discussion groups, and helpful links to other resources.
Assessment: This timely update is well written, clear and concise, and covers minor illness care well. It could be a useful adjunct for new nurses and nurse practitioners. Experienced nurse practitioners in the U.S. may desire a reference that covers more comprehensive care for their practices.
