This will be the first nursing book of its kind, focusing on the positioning of nurses within the multidisciplinary team, and outlining their role in the assessment, planning, implementation and evaluation of care for IBD patients. This book presents ways for nurses to provide continuity of care, support, and information to patients from diagnosis onwards, helping to prevent crisis and deterioration so patients can achieve the best possible quality of life. By understanding the disease, its management, and gaining insight into the patient's experience in this way, nurses can make a real difference in clinical practice. This title features clear, concise, clinical content covering all the essential aspects of IBD care and patient treatment. It presents the basics of IBD, Clinical Management and Advanced Practice. Each section includes key points, case studies, and a unique patient translation summary to enable nurses to evaluate their own learning, and importantly apply this directly to their practice.This book will logically progress through the patient pathway, integrating research evidence, patient experience, clinical expertise and nursing theory to provide an authoritative text for all nurses caring patients with IBD.
