This book helps nurses coming to work in the UK for the first time communicate with patients and staff. It will assist non-EU nurses as they prepare for the English test and adaptation course necessary to practice. Covering a range of subjects, its main purpose is to explain colloquial language that patients might use but is not found in conventional dictionaries e.g. 'to spend a penny' or 'trouble with the waterworks'. In addition to communication skills, it contains practical advice on becoming registered, nursing in the UK, and the organization of the health & social care team. · An extensive list of colloquialisms, phrasal verbs & idioms will enable the nurse to understand most of the informal language encountered in practice. · Practical information on getting on the UK register, the IELTS test & adaptation programs will help nurses to get jobs more quickly upon arrival. · Information about the organization of the NHS will help nurses to make sense of the health system and settle in more quickly. · Practical information on resources will help nurses tackle any organizational problems that they encounter.

As our understanding of learning focuses on the whole person rather than individual aspects of learning, so the process of learning is beginning to be studied from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. This handbook presents a comprehensive overview of the contemporary research into learning: it brings together a diverse range of specialities with chapters written by leading scholars throughout the world from a wide variety of different approaches. The International Handbook of Learning captures the complexities of the learning process in seven major parts. Its 54 chapters are sub-divided in seven parts: Learning and the person: senses, cognitions, emotions, personality traits and learning styles Learning across the lifespan Life-wide learning Learning across the disciplines: covering everything from anthropology to neuroscience Meaning systems’ interpretation Learning and disability Historical and contemporary learning theorists. Written by international experts, this book is the first comprehensive multi-disciplinary analysis of learning, packing a diverse collection of research into one accessible volume.

The book includes terms that are the concern of all nurses and terms that are relevant to specific areas of practice. The focused nursing information is supplemented by the inclusion of some applied anatomy & physiology, important items from the medical and surgical specialties, and some basic psychology and sociology. Numerous in-depth entries explore issues rather than just provide a basic definition. There are, of course, a proportion of shorter definitions. The intentions are to use references in the in-depth entries and provide readers with other sources of information on the topic. Because the book does not attempt to cover other related areas the opportunity exists to provide comprehensive evidence-based information about important nursing issues. The style will is dictated by having an A-Z format but the intention is to highlight material in some of the in-depth entries. This is achieved with separate Practice application boxed items adjacent to the entry. Entries explore issues, rather than giving just a basic definition Pocket book format A quick reference covering a wide range of topics It is very nursing focused Generously illustrated Edited by an experienced nurse editor with a general, wide ranging knowledge of nursing Combines the best material from a range of proven Elsevier publications
