Review of First Edition: "It is rare to find a book which successfully combines being an aid to study with practical guidance...written in a most readable and compassionate way" - "Nursing Times". The first edition of this ground-breaking text was applauded as a unique resource for nurses caring for patients who have suffered an alteration to their body image through injury or disease. Sensitively written and research-based, this book continues to focus on the essential nursing relationship with patients and their families in both hospital and the community. It addresses both the physical and psychological impact of an alteration to body image and the essential need to communicate, counsel and support patients through their shock, worries and sometimes despair. The second edition has been fully revised and updated throughout and new chapters are included on: measuring body image, cultural issues, spinal cord injury, body image and HIV/AIDS. This aspect of care should feature as an integral part of nursing practice, and the second edition will be welcomed by students and practising nurses alike.
