"Expertly compiled and co-edited by Molly Courtenay (Cardiff University) and Enrique Castro-Sanchez, (Imperial College, London) and exploring all aspects of AMS, Antimicrobial Stewardship for Nursing Practice is underpinned by a competency framework endorsed by scientific and professional societies, including the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It explains the practices that ensure optimal use of antibiotics for the best clinical outcome, with both minimal toxicity to the patient and minimal impact on subsequent antimicrobial resistance.
The first book that is applied directly to antimicrobial stewardship for nurses, supports standards of proficiency for registered nurses, and can therefore be used by regulators and professional bodies to inform standards of proficiency and guidance, Antimicrobial Stewardship for Nursing Practice covers infection prevention and control, antimicrobial resistance, diagnosis of infection and appropriate antimicrobial use, patient engagement, collaboration between professions and how to implement AMS in nursing practice. Including learning tools such as objectives, practical case studies and questions throughout, as well as lecture slides, this book is an essential read for undergraduate nursing students and specialist nurses worldwide.
An essential and core addition to college and university library Health/Medicine collections, and an ideal textbook for nursing school curriculums."
“Finally, we have a book from the tropics and for the tropics, or better yet a book from the developing world and for the developing world, where most goats are today …. The final chapter presents, like no other book before, the opportunities of managing goats under the different ecological, geographic and climate conditions and constraints around the developing world, and where no other farm animal besides goats can still survive and be productive. This book is highly recommended as a textbook for students, scientists and practitioners of animal science.”
