Maths can be an unnecessary source of anxiety for both students and professionals involved in nursing and healthcare. Now the new edition of Coben & Atere-Roberts' classic text tackles this issue head-on, providing valuable support and advice for those who need it. Building on the success of its predecessor, the second edition provides practical help in a user-friendly format, offering refreshers on maths and anchoring suggested strategies to real-life situations. There are new sections on nurse prescribing, care of older patients and the organization of healthcare work - all designed to reflect the changing responsibilities within the nursing and healthcare fields. The result is an indispensable guidebook that leaves nurses and other health professionals free to concentrate on caring for patients safely and effectively.

DIANA COBEN is Reader in Adult Numeracy at King's College London. She founded Adults Learning Mathematics (ALM), an international research forum, and was a founder member of the National Research and Development Centre for Adult Literacy and Numeracy (NRDC).

ELIZABETH ATERE-ROBERTS is Team Leader/Older People's Specialist Nurse in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham Primary Care Trusts.
