Book Cover While vast numbers of nurses across the globe contribute in all areas of healthcare delivery from primary care to acute and long-term care in community settings, there are significant differences in how they are educated, as well as the precise nature of their practice. This comprehensive handbook provides a research-informed and international perspective on the critical issues in contemporary nurse education. As an applied discipline, nursing is implemented differently depending on the social, political and cultural climate in any given context. These factors impact on education, as much as on practice, and are reflected in debates around the value of accredited programmes, and on-the-job training, apprenticeship, undergraduate and postgraduate pathways into nursing. Engaging with these debates amongst others, the authors collected here discuss how, through careful design and delivery of nursing curricula, nurses can be prepared to understand complex care processes, complex healthcare technologies, complex patient needs and responses to therapeutic interventions, and complex organizations. The book discusses historical perspectives on how nurses should be educated; contemporary issues facing educators; teaching and learning strategies; the politics of nurse education; education for advanced nursing practice; global approaches; and educating for the future. Bringing together leading authorities from across the world to reflect on past, present and future approaches to nurse education and nursing pedagogy, this handbook provides a cutting-edge overview for all educators, researchers and policy-makers concerned with nurse education.

Different combinations of the technologies can offer possibilities for differing solutions in different countries to the similar problems that many are likely to face.

  Bryman, Alan/ 9781412911634/ Price:G 675.00
Mixed methods research has become one of the major areas of growth in social research methodology in the last 10 years. The divisions between quantitative and qualitative research have increasingly given way to imaginative ways of combining the two approaches and a growing acceptance of adopting a multi-method approach. Much of the literature on mixed-methods research is highly dispersed in a wide variety of journals and other publications. A great deal of it is not well known and quite a lot of it is inaccessible. Alan Bryman, widely recognized as an authority on the subject, brings together the key articles in this important field to form a definitive resource collection. Volume I outlinines the epistemological and ontological issues relating to the debate about quantitative and qualitative research and how these have an impact on the possibility of mixing methods. Volume II is concerned with the combination of different methods within quantitative research and within qualitative research. Volume III addresses the methodological issues involved in combining quantitative and qualitative research - the different ways in which mixed-methods research is actually accomplished. Volume IV continues the kinds of material used in Volume III but will also include some examples of combining quantitative and qualitative research.

SM04-334 Fundamental Aspect of Caring for the Person with Dementia.
  Beart, Kirsty/ 9781856423038/ Price:G 19.99
This book begins by asking you to try to imagine the life you have now changing beyond all recognition. One day you wake up and don't know where you are. You ask someone near you where you are but they seem unable to understand your question. Why do they not understand, what is wrong with them? It is hard to contemplate this and to fully comprehend the emotional turmoil caused by the symptoms of a Dementia type illness. This book has been written with the intention of helping its readers to understand the perspective of the person who has been labelled as suffering with dementia, as well as that of the carers and the professionals. It is split into two sections to help the reader identify the parts they need to read at different times or for varying purposes. Section 1 offers information and debate about the theoretical issues and explanations of Dementia and memory loss. This includes explanations of what Dementia actually is and where it comes from in the first place. Section 2 moves into the more practical side of this text. Many areas of concern for carers and professionals alike are similar. This section brings their ideas and perspectives together so that they might be able to benefit from each other.

SM04-332 Work-Based Learning in Cancer and Palliative Care.
  Searle, Liz/ 9781856422352/ Price:G 25.99
About the book The education of the workforce and the continuing professional development of the current workforce is the business of all organisations. The level, scope, type and nature of education may vary but the essence is the same: education is about encouraging, challenging and broadening horizons at the same time as preparing people to 'do the job'. This book tells the story of how the Macmillan National Institute of Education was conceived and its development along the way. It is, as such, a case study of how an education team, given the freedom to grow and innovate, achieved an outcome that benefited both the practitioner and the educator. It also presents an account of partnership working between organisations & often challenging, often frustrating, but with positive end results. The chapters look at what work-based learning is, how to identify the learning and development needs of the workforce, the value of mentorship, role transition, succession planning and future directions of workforce development. Finally, the editors have drawn on the knowledge gained and lessons learnt from their experiences to offer a reflective model for evaluating the effectiveness of continuing professional development to assist readers in planning educational initiatives for the future.
SM04-332 Fundamental Aspects of Complementary Therapies and Health.
  Genders, Nicky/ 9781856422697/ Price:G 14.99
Complementary and alternative medecine (CAM) has grown substantially in popularity over recent years. A growing number of health care practitioners, particularly nurses and midwives, are delivering care where CAM therapies are part of the treatment regime. Furthermore, patient knowledge about, choice of and access to CAM has led to many patients and clients requesting complementary therapies alongside orthodox care. In the current climate it is therefore imperative that nurses understand the issues surrounding the use of CAM by patients and clients in their care. This introductory text offers an overview of the range of complementary therapies available in the UK, and will help give the practitioner an essential understanding of the nature of each therapy and the existing evidence base so that they can make informed judgements for the benefit of patients. It will also be a useful resource for patients and clients themselves.
SM04-331 Clinical Supervision in Palliative Care.
  Bayliss, Jean/ 9781856422918/ Price:G 24.99
Clinical supervision has been researched, promoted, and proven as a very effective strategy for constantly developing skills, for maintaining and raising standards, for encouraging personal and professional developement, and for building team ethos. This book explores clinical supervision and the qualities, skills, models and ethics needed to ensure success. Palliative care is arguably the most stressful area of nursing and care work, as well as being one of the most rewarding. It is work that requires a high level of practical skill, which can help the dying person to feel more comfortable and confident. But practical skills, valuable though they are, are not enough. Palliative care demands from its practitioners an equally high level of compassion and resilience. Offering this combination of practical comfort and deeply felt concerned support is hugely demanding. This book is an attempt to suggest a strategy for professional help which will also enhance patient and client care. Clinical Supervision for Palliative Care has been written as a workbook. You will find pauses for reflection and lots of questions to consider and answer. Good Palliative Care is based on good communication - so you are asked to interact with the text. The book was researched with a range of professionals working in the field, and with some of those receiving their care. This book will encourage implementation of Clinical Supervision across the widening field of Palliative Care - not only because it will support and sustain practitioners, who are not always good at looking after themselves, but because it will also fulfil the ultimate goal of all of us - the best possible care of dying people, helping them to the death that they want, and easing their suffering and that of those closest to them. Jean Bayliss is a Consultant and Tainer in Counselling, Education and Guidancevision.

  / 9781856423007/ Price:G 29.99

SM04-325 Trends in Wound Care, volume IV.
  Cutting, Keith/ 9781856423090/ Price:G 29.99
The fourth volume of Trends in Wound Care focuses on two particular wound types: leg ulcers and pressure ulcers. These wounds account for a large proportion of the demands made on the time and financial resources available within wound care. It is therefore important that we equip ourselves with the available knowledge in order to make best use of these resources. In addition, care of patients with leg ulcers and pressure ulcers is of topical interest. This is in some part due to the difficulty in ascertaining prevalence rates as recent, accurate and widespread prevalence data of these wounds is not available in the public domain. It would seem appropriate that the move towards bench-marking would encourage the gathering and publication of this data on a national scale. Within the overall theme in this volume the focus remains on improving patient outcomes and reducing morbidity. It is for this reason that chapters included also examine assessment, principles of management and key considerations in dressing selection. We hope that you enjoy this latest addition to the Trends in Wound Care series that provides an update and easy reference source within this fascinating field of care.

This edition has been thoroughly updated to recognise changes and developments in both theory and practice over recent years. The book illustrates how reflective practice can fulfil a fundamental need for all health care professionals to make sense of their clinical experience. It shows how these sense-making processes are complex and need to be sustained over time. A variety of models are represented, classified and critiqued. Models which view reflection as orderly, cognitive, linear, step-by-step processes are set alongside those which view reflection as a more messy, value-laden, cyclical and context-bound activity. Practical suggestions of how to use them are given and their advantages and limitations are discussed. The clinical implications of the principles and processes associated with reflective practice are discussed in the text and are then drawn together in conclusion.

Neuroscience Nursing: Assessment and patient management.
  Woodward, Sue/ 9781856423083/ Price:G 39.99
This book brings together the best of the neuroscience articles that have been published in the British Journal of Nursing since April 2004. Together they provide an essential reference for nurses working with people with neurological problems in a variety of settings from critical care and tertiary referral centres with specialist neuroscience units, through to stroke services and primary care teams. The book is divided into three sections. The first section focuses on aspects of assessment relevant to neurological patients, the second covers a variety of issues in the management of patients with acute neurological conditions, including some key aspects of neuroscience critical care practice, and the final section focuses on the management of patients with long-term neurological conditions. The aim of this book is to identify key areas of practice and evidence of current best care rather than to provide the definitive neuroscience nursing text. The fact that such a wide range of papers has been published over such a short space of time in one generic nursing journal is testament to the importance of the subject for all practicing nurses.

This unique resource provides an overview of the current state of parish nursing. Information and guidelines on how to initiate a parish nursing or health ministry program within a faith community are provided, including discussions of contemporary models of parish nursing.
