Book Description

8 Dec 2000 0333802314 978-0333802311
Challenges in Clinical Practice aims to support nurses and other health care workers in taking the health care agenda forward. With the constant bombardment of changes in policy initiatives, and the accompanying challenges which face nurses and other health care professionals this book will be a welcome asset to a strained labour market. It addresses the key issues and critical challenges facing the health care services today such as clinical governance, managing change, supervision in practice and research based practice.

Nurses represent the fastest growing users of IT and as such the importance and simplicity of IT in supporting current challenges is also explored. The demystification of IT is brilliantly executed here and useful samplers are provided. Central to all changes are the needs of clients and patients, and partnerships in care - the power bases of service provision. The complex realities of this are probed, sometimes disconcertingly, within this important text.
Written and edited by key professionals in the field, this text is an invaluable resource for pre- and post-registration students, those in middle and senior management positions and all teaching staff within the health sector. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to accept the challenge of providing the best in health care services.

Product details

Product Description


'This excellent book provides a useful toolkit to nurses, midwives and health visitors... Above all it interprets policy in its relevance to practice, placing practice firmly at the heart of modern nursing.' - Extract from the Foreword by Sarah Mullally - Chief Nursing Officer/Director of Nursing

'The book seems to be a very timely piece of work introducing and reflecting upon many aspects of the current political agenda challenging nursing and the National Health Service. As each chapter develops from a theory base to demonstration through examples in current practice, the reader can build a picture of how to negotiate local practice change in their own clinical area. I have not seen any other books currently taking the agenda set out in this book.' - Kevin Purvis, Director of Nursing, St George's Hospital National Health Service Trust, London
