Overview

This is the latest edition of the book known in nursing circles as 'Chilman and Thomas'. It is a foundation textbook for nurses which addresses key topics covered by the Common Foundation Programme (CFP) as well as providing information on a wide range ofdisorders. The text has been radically revised and restructured by new editors to meet the needs of Project 2000, including a scaling down of physiology and anatomy coverage to allow increased coverage of nursing theories and processes. There is also increased emphasis on health education, in keeping with the Project 2000 philosophy. The book is highly illustrated with 2 colour line drawings to aid understanding. The new format allows it to be competitively priced, while actually increasing the informationon offer!
