Lippincott Williams & Wilkins announced today that it has expanded the expert clinical content in Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills to include 100 perioperative nursing procedures. The new perioperative procedures are the latest addition to the comprehensive list of essential medical-surgical, critical care, maternal-neonatal, pediatric, psychiatric, and emergency nursing procedures that make up the trusted online clinical resource. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals, and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, and pharmacy.

Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills gives nurses accurate, step-by-step guidance for more than 1,050 evidence-based procedures. The online resource provides skills checklists and competency tests for each procedure to help facilities verify staff competence. Each procedure undergoes a thorough annual review process to ensure the most up-to-date clinical information is provided. Facilities can customize and add procedures to meet their specific needs.

Lippincott Williams & Wilkins is proud to offer the only institution-wide, online, point-of-care resource that includes perioperative-specific nursing procedures,” says Judy McCann, MSN, RN, and Chief Nursing Officer at Lippincott Williams & Wilkins. “Lippincott’s Nursing Procedures and Skills is a comprehensive nursing procedure reference for hospitals committed to providing nurses with the tools necessary to deliver the highest level of patient care.”
