Like many parts of the world, the UK is witnessing significant changes to Operating Department Practice (ODP) education, a change that is bringing with it the need for new publications aimed specifically at the operating department practitioner. The Operating Department Practice A-Z follows a familiar 'dictionary-like' format to present alphabetically the key topics of interest to ODPs in training and in practice. Each entry has its own detailed explanation and the book has a user-friendly format to allow rapid access to information. It is an essential purchase for ODPs, as well as being a handy quick reference for medical students and a useful information source for recovery/theatre nurses.

• The first book to define all of the key terms that a practising or trainee ODP will need to know and understand • Alpahebetical presentation with finger indexing down the page edges for ease of quick reference • Affordable for trainees
