This book provides a comprehensive guide for nurses practicing in any area of endocrinology and at any level of expertise. Endocrinology Nursing is a fast-developing specialty with nurses performing advanced roles and expanding their practice to run independent nurse-led services.

This volume includes 13 sections and 69 chapters providing a comprehensive overview of adult and paediatric endocrinology but also a section on advanced practice, role development and nursing research. It has been written by an international team of more than 100 eminent nurses, physicians, surgeons, psychologists and other healthcare professionals, which makes this book a valuable resource for any multidisciplinary team. Many patient advocacy groups have contributed with case studies which emphasises the close working relationships with patients.

⭐ Arrived today in two volumes. I love it already. Great information, well formatted.
⭐ Buy from amazon and you get both books! Very pleased I got this – it is already (and will continue to be) extremely useful… The lack of an index in such complex books is perplexing and the only negative… Kindle access for those who invest in the hard copy might inspire more sales and make it truly useful – especially at work!
⭐ Brilliant book! Been waiting ages for this and finally it is here. I made sure that our institution has the hard copy and I have purchased the kindle version for my personal use. The kindle version is perfect, downloaded the book in my ipad (kindle app) which is very handy especially when you are always on the move. The book is clearly laid out, with each section/ topic starting from the basic A&P which then branches out into different conditions of the gland in discussion. I will definitely use this book and feel that this will be my work bible! It is 1337 pages and according to Kindle, it will take me 57 hrs and 11 mins to read it, so I better get cracking!
⭐ Unfortunately I’ve had to send my copy back. Please be aware you are paying for volume 2 only.Volume 1 is sold separately and the same price as volume 2. Or so I have been informed by customer services.What a shame we are being priced out ofSuch a fantastic resource.
⭐ A splendid concise educational book containing the very latest medical practices in Endocrinology, wonderfully presented in this two volume set containing over 1300 pages, a credit to its compilers.
⭐ Not correct which has greatly disapointmented me
