Minor Injuries, 3rd Edition

Minor Injuries, 3rd Edition

A Clinical Guide

The latest edition of this popular textbook continues to offer accessible, practical and clinically relevant information on the management of minor injuries. Reflecting the author's long experience as a practitioner and teacher, the volume covers anatomy, examination and specific injuries in the depth that the specialty requires. Injuries to all parts of the body are included. Richly illustrated throughout - with many original images based on the author's own designs - the volume is also accompanied by online videos where the author demonstrates the limb examinations which are described in the text.

The new edition has expanded to survey the law and the basic principles for X-ray requesting and interpretation in minor injury areas. The volume also offers more detailed guidance on the specific X-rays which are required for each of the limb joints. This material is intended to satisfy the legal training requirements for new practitioners to request X-rays as non-medical referrers.

Fully updated to include the latest guidelines and current practice on minor injuries of every kind, the third edition now offers a more comprehensive structure for the specialty of minor injuries, based on injuries to the limb and to the midline. Within the different topics under these broad headings, advice is given on the care of children, adults and the elderly.

Minor Injuries: A Clinical Guide, third edition, will be indispensable to every trainee, from nursing and from other professions, and to those who are already qualified and who wish to expand or update their practice. The volume also aims to equip practitioners to work in stand-alone units, seeing every patient who presents, and as such is ideal for those undertaking Advanced Practice training. The book also offers teachers of minor injuries a rationale for their sessions and a framework for designing their courses.
