The Clinical Handbook for Medical-Surgical Nursing: Clinical Reasoning in Patient Care is a handy, pocket-sized reference for the care of patients with health problems often encountered in clinical situations. While primarily developed as a supplement to the Sixth Edition of Medical-Surgical Nursing: Clinical Reasoning in Patient Care , to which it is cross-referenced by chapter, the Clinical Handbook may also be used as a stand-alone reference text. It provides nursing students essential information in an easy-to-follow format, allowing them to respond quickly when a patient’s condition changes or when they are assigned to a new patient.
