This groundbreaking textbook provides a concise yet substantial update on the South African primary care context, while drawing on the latest international research and the global clinical knowledge base to substantially revise the clinical nurse practitioner's skill set. "Competent primary care providers who 'put people first' are required in the front line in order to make a difference. The need for widely accessible, competent and caring clinical nurse practitioners" (Mash et al, 2010: xii) prompted the compilation of this outstanding text. Hitherto, community and primary care nurse training tended to be limited to a narrow framework of biomedical formulas relating, primarily to the physical body. By contrast, this first edition of the South African Clinical Nurse Practitioner's Manual presents a holistic continuum marked by a refreshing approach.
