In this ground-breaking book, Professor Tracey McDonald, RSL LifeCare Chair of Ageing at the Australian Catholic University, explores some of the many issues arising from an ageing population, ageing veterans and community health. Many of the projects presented in the book have been awarded Better Practice Awards by the Australian Government and provide inspiration to aged care service providers keen to improve their services. Professor McDonald has developed 'practice-driven research', an approach that fully involves clinical nurses and carers in striving to understand the work they are doing, and to improve on it. This approach has been developed in collaboration with the clinical nurses, therapists and managers at RSL LifeCare, and addresses the issues of relevance and appropriateness of research in solving practical, day-to-day problems within the Aged Care setting. It will appeal to all involved with the aged care industry, particularly managers and leaders at all levels, and also bridges the theory-practice gap by providing an overview of practice-driven research for health sciences students within the Australian University environment.

Competency in Maths is essential for safe nursing practice; this is the only text to clearly explain Maths specifically for students in nursing and healthcare, expelling the tears and frustration that can be experienced whilst trying to grapple with the subject. The author has been teaching anatomy, physiology and pharmacology to nursing students for 25 years, and is well placed to understand the fears that students have when addressing numbers and maths. This text will help students to handle numbers confidently in the administration of drugs and other practice settings. Clinical examples will be used to illustrate the use of arithmetic and the student will be able to work at their own pace throughout. In addition to drug calculations, the text will allow students to feel confident in other practice settings such as: calculating the body mass index (BMI) of a patient, reading and interpreting a blood result back from the lab, interpreting demographic data, calculating the nutritional intake for a patient, and measuring a patient's blood pressure, pulse, and temperature.Shihab draws on her 25 years of teaching experience to provide a text devoted specifically to competency in the often-dreaded area of maths for student nurses. - THES, Feb 2010 MyMathLab is really good. I especially like the common clinical measurements and physiological measurement questions because I can really relate them to practice. I even take the book to practice with me because it is such an easy read for me as I have never worked in healthcare before. I feel like I have learnt a lot from the book.-Wayne Fleming, Nursing Student, Manchester Metropolitan University
