In order to succeed in an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE), nursing students need to know not just what an OSCE involves, but how to undertake the skill correctly at each OSCE station. This book is a complete guide on how to prepare for an OSCE with step-by-step instructions for the ten most common OSCE stations that nursing students can face. Specific stations range from asceptic non-touch technique, communication and observations, to more highly pressured skills such as medication administration, resuscitation and assessing a deteriorating patient. Nursing OSCEs: a complete guide to exam success covers these skills and more in a clearly structured and concise way. Each OSCE chapter outlines: · Key revision material enabling quick and complete revision · Step by step instructions on how to perform the skill in an OSCE, · An example examiners marking sheet, so students know the criteria they will be measured against · Typical questions an examiner may ask and suggested answers · Common errors to avoid and top tips for success. With over 70 illustrations and videos of four OSCE stations, it demonstrates how to pass key stations. Bonus online material includes colour photographs and Powerpoints for revision at http://www.oup.com/uk/orc/bin/9780199693580/ This book is ideal for nursing students preparing for OSCE as well as for lecturers, mentors and practising nurses involved in student education.

This book aims to provide an easily accessible quick reference guide for advanced nursing students preparing to undertake practical examinations to assess advanced clinical practice competence, and students preparing for practical examinations in non-medical prescribing assessment. These examinations are commonly known as objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs). The book is a preparation and revision tool, designed to be read in conjunction with any recommended core clinical textbooks: however, along with giving students step-by-step instructions on performing well in OSCE scenarios, it also gives guidance to academic staff on preparing to teach and mark OSCEs. This book uses a case study approach to OSCEs in a coherent, consistent, and easily understandable style. Both authors are clinical academic nurse practitioners who regularly work in clinical practice in conjunction with teaching advanced nurse practitioner and non-medical prescribing students.

Die vorliegende 3. Auflage der Molekularen Humangenetik ist völlig neu überarbeitet - unter Berücksichtigung der Entdeckungen, die im Zuge und in der Folge des Human Genome Project gemacht wurden. Die einführenden Kapitel (Teil I) beschreiben die Grundlagen wie DNA-Struktur und -Funktion, Chromosomen, Zellen und Entwicklung, Stammbaumanalysen und grundlegende Techniken im Labor. In Teil II werden die verschiedenen Genomsequenzierungsprojekte und die dadurch ermöglichten Einblicke in Organisation, Expression, Variabilität und Evolution des menschlichen Genoms gezeigt. Die Kartierung, Identifizierung und Diagnose der Ursachen von mendelnden und komplexen Krankheiten sowie Krebs ist Schwerpunkt von Teil III. Der letzte Teil gibt Ausblicke auf die funktionelle Genomik und Bioinformatik, auf Tiermodelle und Therapien. Das Buch soll eine Brücke bilden zwischen den grundlegenden Lehrbüchern und der Forschungsliteratur, sodass auch Interessierte mit relativ wenig Hintergrundwissen zum Thema die neuesten Forschungsergebnisse lesen und beurteilen können.
