Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From Amazon customers’ reviews of the fifth edition:
“This book is absolutely essential for all nursing students and qualified nurses. It explains absolutely everything in detail with diagrams, making it a great supplement or preparation for life on the wards. It is without doubt the best skills book available and I thoroughly recommend it.“ A reader from Dorset.

“I found this book very useful…Since buying the book I have found it to be used by two placement areas and adopted by another after seeing me using it. It gives a step-by-step account of a wide range of procedures and a rationale for each step with a comprehensive bibliography. A great book!“ A reader from Northampton.

The fifth edition of The Royal Marsden Hospital Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures … contains evidence based guidelines with clear rationales to the procedure being undertaken. The attention to detail is second to none whether dealing with the basics of handwashing or more complex procedures like cardiopulmonary resuscitation, The Royal Marsden Hospital Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures is clear, unambiguous and easy to understand. …As a student nurse this book has been invaluable as a learning tool, and will be one of a few books that will not collect dust on my shelf. “ A reader from Sheffield.

Nursing Standard
"This comprehensive, evidence-based book is bursting with information and guidance on clinical nursing procedures...well written and an excellent resource for nurses, reflecting evidence-based procedures used in the clinical setting, as well as developing the nursing agenda of the future."

Journal of Clinical Nursing
"The Royal Marsden Hospital Manual of Clinical Nursing Procedures has established itself as an important book for clinical practice...this manual undoubtedly responds to a clear demand from practitioners for a user-friendly, accessible resource on a wide range of clinical procedures.

This is a valuable text that I would expect to find in all practice settings, clincial skills laboratories and university libraries. It should be readily available to nurses and students wherever they practice."

Journal of Advanced Nursing
"The Royal Marsden Hospital have continued their tradition of producing an excellent Manual which is useful to all levels of nurses, as well as student nurses, and will no doubt be adopted by many Trusts as their own procedure Manual. In summary, a good text to have in each clinical area and for use in nursing education."

Sylvia Denton OBE, President of the Royal College of Nursing
"This book has become a much loved and respected resource for generations of nurses over the last twenty years. Once again, with this Sixth Edition, busy nurses are helped to give excellent evidence-based nursing care to patients who, these days, may spend a shorter time in hospital but require increased amounts of informed care. Like nursing, it provides ongoing quality round the clock and round the world."

Heather M McClelland, Lecturer Practitioner, A&E Leeds General Infirmary
" is obvious when reading the text that it is a current and very relevant clinical work. I will certainly be encouraging its use in my own department, and would urge others to do the same."
