Achieve high standards in patient-focused care. Health Services Assistance provides complete coverage of core and elective units for assisting in nursing work in acute care. Exercises throughout the text provide students with the means to self-assess and extend their skills and knowledge. Foundation skills are developed early, underpinning understanding of the specialist acute care chapters that follow. Students are encouraged to reflect and contextualise their learning and to practise techniques in small groups. Activities break up the material so information is easier to retain. Self-check, extension activities and discussion questions can be incorporated into an institution's assessment strategy.
