As nurses and other healthcare professionals become increasingly responsible for triage, assessment and treatment of minor injuries, this comprehensive training manual offers clear, reliable and up-to-date guidance for all those working in this rapidly changing field.



The first text of its kind, written by former nurse practitioner Dennis Purcell, Minor Injuries has been fully revised in its fourth edition and reorganized into a more logical structure. It provides easy-to-follow guidance on all common presentations occurring in children, adults and older patients, taking the reader through each region of the body and providing core anatomy and examination principles to support treatment decisions.



This popular text is richly illustrated throughout and will be indispensable for trainees undertaking minor injuries courses as well as practising nurses, emergency nurse practitioners, paramedics and advanced practitioners working in standalone minor injury units.
