  • Description
  • Details

This edition stresses the proven need for a return to the patient-centered care neglected through our health system's emphasis on procedures, protocols, diagnostic testing, technology, and costs.

It addresses the significant challenges to quality care posed by the upcoming changes in our health care system, and focuses on health systems, the role of nursing within them, and the interprofessional health team as the key to change ensuring high quality care. The book responds to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's focus on accountable care organizations, the recent IOM's Future of Nursing Report, the call for radical transformation of nursing education, and current evidence on patient safety and quality of care.

This text explores the Quality-Caring Model, which honors nursing's most deeply felt value, and can be applied to clinical, educational, and leadership practice to advance our nation's health system. Among the book's strengths are its translation of theoretical knowledge to practical applications that can be used for clinical interventions and resolution of professional issues. Chapters include key terms, case studies along with practical exercises and references, and "Calls to Action" offering inspiration and guidance for implementing change.
