Myles Textbook for Midwives, 16th Edition
NOT YET PUBLISHED
Myles Textbook for Midwives is the world’s best-selling Midwifery textbook, now in its 16th edition, with sales to 75 countries and with a large and growing market for the International Edition in Asia.
This edition offers a fully 4-colour book, with updated design and illustrations.
There is also a change of focus to concentrate on the all-important central sections dealing with pregnancy, labour and the postnatal period. Evidence-based practice, ethics, woman-centred care, pharmacology, risk management and clinical governance will now be integrated throughout these sections, instead of being separate chapters so that the information is available where it is most relevant. Weblinks provide up-to-date information where appropriate, e.g Midwifery regulation in the UK, NMC guidelines, etc. This will strengthen the book’s position as an essential textbook focussing on the topics that are important to Midwifery students.
New chapters on the topics of Obesity, Perineal trauma and Infection control, will be added and there will be expanded information on High Risk and Emergency conditions, which are much more prevalent in Midwifery now, and take up a major part of the Midwife’s time.Table of Contents
