A guide to the care of a patient with a urological problem. It uses the structures of the genito-urinary tract as a framework and starting with a top-down approach, describes the anatomy, physiology, function and dysfunction of the kidney and ureters, bladder, prostate, penis and urethra, and the testicle. Each chapter describes the nursing care and psychological needs of the patient. There are specialist chapters covering paediatric disorders, gender reassignment, erectile dysfunction and catheter care. Philip Downey has brought together the work of ten nurses with expertise in this speciality.
