New textbook on nursing and midwifery.

Nursing and midwifery: a practical approach is a textbook on nursing and midwifery in developing countries that was published by Macmillan Health in April 2006 in conjunction with Teaching Aids at Low Cost (TALC).

The book addresses an important gap in the literature, providing a comprehensive textbook for nurses and midwives in a developing nation setting. It has detailed coverage of all core topics as well as dealing with subjects such as health provision, medical ethics and mental illness. It is easy to read and well illustrated throughout, with strong chapters on complex labour, common neonatal problems and care of patients with HIV. Authors of the various sections come from Botswana, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda and the UK. The editorial team includes Dr Gillian Barber of the RCM Midwifery Society.
