Book Overview
Fast-track medical settings call for at-your-fingertips information. Here is an easy to use, quick-reference guide for nurse practitioners and other health care providers in emergency, medical, screening, fast track and/or primary care settings with adult patients. In a concise, optimally organized format that includes current, evidence-based guidelines, the resource delivers a wealth of information for assessment and management of the most commonly encountered problems in these settings. Concise yet packed with crucial knowledge, The Guide is arranged in a logical head-to-toe format that includes the history and physical examination and essential medical decision-making considerations. The material is organized in a true rapid-access format, with salient information presented all on one page for maximum efficiency and speed of retrieval. A variety of templates for dictation/documentation are provided to assist the clinician with the development of a concise and logical patient record. These templates can be mixed and matched as needed and, using a specific template for focused patient problems (i.e. knee injury), will facilitate assessment fine-tuning. Also included are frequently used illustrations for anatomical records as well as templates to assist in identification of normal and abnormal presentations. Additional helpful features include Don't Miss boxes with bullet points of critical information, a rapid review of systems, billing information, and a dedicated page for NP/PA Survival Information and notes.
