New book on orthopedic and trauma nursing to be published in Chinese

A book on orthopedic and trauma nursing co-edited by Dr Mary Drozd, a senior teaching fellow in nursing at Aston University, is to be translated and published in Chinese.

Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing: An Evidence-based Approach to Musculoskeletal Care, published by Wiley Blackwell, is now in its second edition. It is aimed at pre-registration and qualified adult and children's nurses working in orthopedic and musculoskeletal trauma units in hospitals and community settings. It is also suitable for students seeking post-qualification education in orthopedic nursing as well as undergraduate nursing and allied health students.

Orthopedic and trauma care remains a highly specialized aspect of healthcare focused on musculoskeletal problems or injury and following orthopedic surgery, and the book fills an important gap in the market. It provides practitioners and educators with current evidence-based practice. Musculoskeletal conditions or injuries are common across all age groups.

The book was selected over many other orthopedic texts for translation and publication in China "due to its high quality and the valuable insights it delivers from a team of highly regarded experts," according to the publisher.

Dr Drozd and co-editor Dr Sonya Clarke, a senior lecturer from the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) sought contributions from a wide range of highly experienced practitioners, researchers and educators from different parts of the globe. They are themselves very experienced.

Dr Drozd is a registered nurse with nearly 40 years' experience and has worked as an advanced nurse practitioner within the field of orthopedics in different parts of the country and in various clinical settings, combining this with academic roles in higher education. She is part of the editorial team for the International Journal of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing and she teaches on Aston University's adult nursing program.

Dr Clarke is a registered children's and adult nurse with over 30 years' experience in orthopedic and trauma nursing, holding a specialist practitioner qualification in orthopedic nursing. Her doctoral research focused on children's experiences of hospital from the perspective of the hospitalized child and the children's nurses who care for them. Sonya is the Chair of the Royal College of Nursing, Society of Orthopaedic and Trauma Nursing.

Dr Drozd said:

"I am truly grateful for the opportunity to co-edit an important textbook with Dr Sonya Clarke from Queen's University Belfast. Working with an amazing team of highly accomplished practitioners and educators who have contributed to the book has been a wonderful experience. The book is proving very popular in the UK and has received five-star reviews. I am really pleased that it will reach a much wider audience when it has been translated into Chinese. Most importantly we hope the book influences nursing practice so patients with musculoskeletal conditions or injuries receive the highest possible quality of evidence-based care."

I am delighted the second edition is to be translated into a second language and will help inform nurses globally. I wish to thank Mary for taking over the editor role. The book again reflects the life course with new contributions from a medical and paramedic perspective. Mary has previously acted as an external examiner for QUB's orthopedic and fracture trauma program, where the book continues to be used as a core text for teaching and learning for both the RN student and pre-registration student."

Tom Marriott, commissioning editor, nursing, midwifery and allied health at Wiley Blackwell, added:

"This collaboration signifies a remarkable milestone and is a testament to the dedication and expertise that has gone into crafting this book, the value of which transcends borders. We celebrate not only the future publication of the book in Chinese but also the shared commitment to advancing healthcare education and improving patient outcomes worldwide."
