District Nursing at a Glance is the perfect study and revision guide for students and qualified nurses alike, providing a concise yet thorough overview of community care and its implications for nursing practice. A new addition to the market-leading at a Glance series, this dynamic and highly visual resource covers a wide range of fundamental topics, from the historical and theoretical background of district nursing to practical information on prescribing, mental health, home assessment, pain management, end of life care, and much more. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this portable and accessible guide:
* Provides a clear picture of delivering care in a patient's own home and addresses many contemporary and emerging aspects of practice
* Covers stroke, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, chemotherapy, and other common diseases suffered by patients in the community setting
* Offers up-to-date information and advice on evidence-based practice, educational pathways, and career development
* Discusses the use of mobile technology to support professional practice of caring for patients in their homes
* Includes summary boxes, key points, full references, links to online resources, and recommendations for practice to improve the learning experience

District Nursing at a Glance is a must-have revision guide and reference for pre-registration nursing students, particularly those in community clinical placements, post-registration students on district nursing courses, and newly qualified district nurses and healthcare assistants.
