This ebook Advanced Practice in Endocrinology Nursing (PDF) provides a comprehensive guide for nurses practicing in any area of endocrinology and at any level of expertise. Endocrinology Nursing is a fast-developing specialty with nurses performing advanced roles and expanding their practice to run independent nurse-led services. Supported by the European Society of Endocrinology (ESE) and edited by members of the ESE Nurses Working Group; this is the first book ever published specifically for endocrine nurses. It is also an excellent resource for endocrinology specialty trainees; general practitioners; medical and nursing students; expert patients and nurses working in specialties such as fertility; oncology; osteoporosis; urology; obesity; and gynaecology; who look after patients with endocrine-related disorders.

This volume includes 13 sections and 69 chapters providing a comprehensive overview of adult and paediatric endocrinology but also a section on role development; advanced practice; and nursing research. It has been written by an international team of more than 100 eminent nurses; surgeons; psychologists; physicians; and other healthcare professionals; which makes this ebook a valuable resource for any multidisciplinary team. Many patient advocacy groups have contributed to case studies which emphasise the close working relationships with patients.
