Chapter 23: Care of the Adult – Surgical

This chapter explores the healthcare professional’s role in care of the adult in a hospital setting - from the time of the patient’s admission, to the aftermath of their surgery.

The companion web material features links to online resources (including those referenced in the printed text), and you can use the links to other chapters to see how issues relating to the entire practice experience come together when caring for the adults in the surgical environment.
