About this book

This book is designed to meet the needs of nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses and also physician assistants, working in urology. The full range of domains of practice is covered, including assessment and diagnosis, clinical management, nurse practitioner and patient relationships, consultation, health promotion and disease prevention, and practice management and research. Some background knowledge is assumed regarding the normal anatomy and physiology of the genitourinary system and the pathophysiology underlying specific urologic health-related problems. The Nurse Practitioner in Urology will be invaluable in ensuring that the nurse practitioner is able to maintain exemplary management of patients with acute and chronic urologic conditions in a wide variety of settings, including independent practices, hospitals, and academic urologic practices. It explains fully the role of the nurse practitioner as a skilled clinician in urology, blending nursing and medical management and capable of managing many chronic nonoperative urologic conditions while recognizing those conditions which may benefit from surgical management. As populations continue to age worldwide, there is no doubt that the provision of advanced urologic care by nurse practitioners is an area that will continue to expand, benefiting from additional training and expertise. ​

Reviews

“This is an important book for novice to experienced nurse practitioners working in urologic settings. It covers the care of adolescent through geriatric patients with specific sections for each subspecialty. … the book also would fulfill the quick reference needs of general urologists, family/internal medicine practitioners, and residents. … This book will continue to be a vital resource in the nurse practitioner's library. It's small, portable package, combined with its thorough coverage of topics, makes it incredibly user friendly.” (Anne E. Calvaresi, Doody’s Book Reviews, July, 2016)

“The book serves as a guide for physician extenders in order to provide expert high quality cost effective care for adult urology patients. … The book is user friendly and easy to navigate. ‘The Nurse Practitioner in Urology’ will be a valued asset to all mid-level providers, physician extenders and specialists in the office based practice in urology. I suspect it will be a valued asset to busy state-of-the-art urological offices.” (Jay B. Hollander, International Urology and Nephrology, Vol. 48, 2016)
