Haematology Nursing is a comprehensive handbook, with a nursing focus, on the care and management of patients with haematological disorders. Divided into four sections, the first provides an introduction to haematology, looking at haemopoiesis, immunology and genetics. Section Two covers non-malignant haematology, including anaemia, haemoglobinopathies and haemochromatosis. Section Three explores the pathophysiology, care and management of myeloproliferative and lymphoproliferative disorders, including leukaemia, myeloma, and lymphoma. The final section provides information on various nursing care interventions, including blood transfusion, venous access devices, and palliative care.
Aimed principally at nurses working in a variety of settings including haematology/oncology wards, medical/haematology wards, specialist bone marrow transplant centres, and community settings, Haematology Nursing is an essential and much-needed reference guide.
