This book has been developed to help nurses who are in nurse practitioner roles by supporting them to develop their 'advanced practice skills'. This book is intended to build on skills and knowledge that nurses will have acquired at staff nurse level. It is intended that this book will develop skills and knowledge which until recently have been more in the medical domain, such sexual history taking and physical assessment.
