A working grasp of numeracy and
basic mathematical skills is vital in modern nursing. Many student nurses have
only a limited knowledge of the subject and struggle to get to get to grips
with the key principles and calculations they need to know.
Numeracy and Clinical
Calculations for Nurses is a user-friendly introduction to the subject which
guides the reader from the basics through to the core calculations required in
a healthcare setting.
Using extensive worked examples
the author links the abstract mathematics to real-world situations to help the
reader understand the subject in the context of their nursing practice.
Rather than simply training by
rote, the book features Sense Checks, Top Tips and Error Alerts to
encourage the reader to develop their
overall numeracy skills, and thus minimise the possibility of future errors.
