Patient Care in Community Practice

A handbook of non-medicinal healthcare

Second edition

Edited by Robin J Harman - Independent Pharmaceutical and Regulatory Consultant

Patient Care in Community Practice is a unique guide for the healthcare professional or carer to a diverse range of non-medicinal products and appliances suitable for use in the home. These products include:

  • stoma appliances
  • incontinence aids
  • trusses
  • graduated compression hosiery
  • wound management products
  • oxygen administration aids
  • inhalation therapy aids
  • dietary products for special needs
  • home parenteral nutrition
  • enteral nutrition
  • dialysis.

Many medical conditions are now treated at home rather than in hospital, and general practitioners, community pharmacists, and district nurses have all had to adjust to the increased demands that this places on the primary healthcare team.

This updated and revised edition discusses the latest developments in the treatment and management of a variety of conditions. It provides the background knowledge, and the confidence, that carers need to ensure that the patient's quality of life is maximised.
