This handbook will guide the reader through the care of patients with a wide range of conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Each chapter is written in a consistent structure for ease-of-use, including symptoms, causes, investigations, and treatments. Key information is provided clearly and succinctly with tables and bullet points. Chapters cover everything from anatomy to the appropriate treatment or nursing care. It now includes new conditions including colorectal cancer, anal warts, cleft lip, and volvulus, as well as the enhanced recovery after surgery pathway. Providing key summaries of common problems and essential issues, it will provide both an invaluable reference for gastrointestinal nurses, as well as a precise, targeted guide for nurses from other specialties caring for patients with GI problems.
