Recent NICE guidance and restructuring of the way acute services are provided mean that nurses outside the traditional critical care environment are increasingly being called upon to recognize, assess, and treat the acutely ill patient. This book will equip nurses in more general wards with the knowledge and skills to care appropriately for the deteriorating patient in the clinical environment. It follows a systems-based approach, with each chapter incorporatinglearning outcomes, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, nursing management, and competence-based skills assessment. Case studies facilitate the linking of knowledge to practice. Other issues covered include an exploration of why there is a need to develop acute care, the role of outreach, acuteemergency situations, transfer of the acutely ill patient, caring for the post ITU patient, documentation in acute care, and continuing education and acute care delivery. The book is aimed at nurses who work in acute and high-dependency areas, as well as more general nurses who are increasingly dealing with the critically or acutely ill patient.This book will equip nurses in more general wards with the knowledge and skills to care appropriately for the deteriorating patient in the clinical environment.
