A well-organized text with evidence-based directives on current perioperative standards, this handy resource covers patient safety, the surgical environment, critical thinking, immediate decision-making, and perioperative skills.

Complex skills and techniques are broken down into a simple, easy-to-follow bulleted format encompassing all key knowledge areas for perioperative nurses.
