    Abstract

    This chapter explores anxiety, providing a clinical description of its impact on patients with guidance for evidence-based assessment and management. Anxiety has a defined psychological mechanism and merits a planned management approach. Every nurse should possess the knowledge and skills to identify patients with and/or at risk of anxiety, to select and implement evidence-based strategies to manage anxiety, and to review the effectiveness of these to inform any necessary changes in care.
