Toohey's Medicine: A Textbook for Students in the Health Care Professions 15th Edition

In spite of recent changes in nurse education, nurses still need to know about medicine to understand their work with patients. This is the latest edition of what has become a popular and enduring nursing textbook. It is a short textbook of medicine written by medical experts but read by nurses. Nurses have consistently found this book invaluable because of the level at which the text is pitched. It has been written in consultation with nurses and covers exactly the medical knowledge that they require. These features make it still an ideal medical text for nurses as it: includes the medical knowledge nurses need; features a new team of contributors to widen input; is written in consultation with nurses to ensure the appropriateness of information; and, follows a new format and typeface - to increase readability.
