Notes on Nursing: What it Is and What it is Not (Innovation Class...

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Written by the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, Notes of Nursing was the first book of its kind. It was originally published when the simple rules of health were only beginning to be known. Its topics were of vital importance for the well-being and recovery of patients, when hospitals were riddled with infection. <br /><br />In this edition, Mark Stinson adds his commentary, writing that this book "portrays the background for understanding the historical evolution from Nightingale’s experiences and sine qa non of her day to today’s utilization of evidence-based medicine in healthcare. The Nightingale legacy is also a call to action for the future – that evidence-based practice is 'in' and ritual or intuition is 'out.' In fact, inappropriate and ineffective diagnostic and therapeutic interventions are not being tolerated."<br /><br />This is one of the first editions of a new series dedicated to collecting and publishing the best – or perhaps the underappreciated – innovation writing of the past. Designed to engage your imagination, this collection brings together some of the premiere publications across generations.

El Hospital es el libro que todo gestor hospitalario o aspirante a ello tendría que leer para saber cómo se resolvieron algunas de las situaciones y anécdotas que todavía se suelen producir en muchos hospitales de España.<br /><br />El libro recoge de forma amena las diferentes vivencias ocurridas por su autor, Enrique Albiol, durante todos los periodos en los que tuvo contacto de una forma directa y activa con la vida y la gestión hospitalaria; es decir, durante el MIR, la Dirección Médica en Asturias y la Gerencia en Girona, con el fin de que esos relatos, normalmente vinculados a anomalías de gestión, puedan ser útiles a futuros gestores y entretenidos para el público en general, que a veces no es consciente de la complejidad que implica gestionar un hospital.<br /><br />Enrique Albiol es licenciado en Ciencias Químicas y en Medicina y Cirugía. A lo largo de su vida ha ejercido su profesión en distintos hospitales de nuestro país, principalmente en la dirección y gestión.

<P>This textbook draws on international contributors with a range of backgrounds to explore, engage with and challenge readers in understanding the many aspects and elements that inform and influence contemporary nursing practice. With a focus to the future, this book explores the challenges facing health services and presents the arguments for a nursing contribution and influence in ensuring safe and quality care. ?</P><br /><P>Readers are supported to explore how, as individuals, they can shape their personal nursing identity and practice. The structure of the text is based on the belief that an individual nurse’s professional identity is developed through an interaction between their personal attributes and the influences of the profession itself. Reflecting this approach, the authors engage in a conversation with the reader rather than simply presenting a series of facts and information.</P><br /><P>Organised around a series of topical and pertinent questions and drawing on perspectives from policy, education and practice, the book explores a diverse range of topics such as:</P><br /><UL><br /><P><br /><LI>how historical and popular media representations of nursing hold back nursing practice today;</LI><br /><P></P><br /><P><br /><LI>the opportunities presented through education and nursing role development to increase the nursing contribution to health services;</LI><br /><P></P><br /><P><br /><LI>the economic and political influences on nursing and health care;</LI><br /><P></P><br /><P><br /><LI>how the professional regulation of nurses and core values informs your practice;</LI><br /><P></P><br /><P><br /><LI>ways to define and develop your own strong nursing identity. </LI><br /><P></P></UL><br /><P>Central chapter questions provide ideal triggers for group discussions in class or online and equally as discussion topics between colleagues to support ongoing professional development. </P><br /><P>There is an emphasis throughout <I>Nurses and Nursing</I> on challenging thinking to recast nursing practice for the future by encouraging the reader to explore and create their emerging nursing identity or re-examine previously long held views. This text supports the reader to better understand health care, nursing and most importantly themselves as nurses.</P>
