The Language of Kindness: A Nurse's Story

Christie Watson was a nurse for twenty years. Taking us from birth to death and from A and E to the mortuary, The Language of Kindness is an astonishing account of a profession defined by acts of care, compassion and kindness. We watch Christie with a new mother holding her premature son who has miraculously made it through the night, we stand by her side as she spends many hours watching agonising heart and lung surgery, and we hold our breath as she washes the hair of a child fatally injured in a fire, attempting to remove the toxic smell of smoke before the grieving family arrive. In our most extreme moments, when life is lived most intensely, Christie is there by your side. She is a guide, mentor and friend. And in these dark days of division and isolationism, she encourages you to stretch out your hand.

CMSA's Integrated Case Management: A Manual For Case Managers by Case Managers
Written by case managers for case managers, this reference manual for nurses and other health professionals presents a CMSA tested approach towards systematically integrating physical and mental health case management principles and assessment tools. Since the health care field has undergone major changes such as the passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Mental Health Parity, Transition of Care & Chronic Care Management and the Medicare Act and CHIP Authorization Act (MACRA), health care workers must competently know how to integrate those new regulations, describe alternative payment options, and implement requirements for greater patient and family assessment, care planning, and care coordination in their practice.CMSA's Integrated Case Management delves into the role of the case manager and unpacks how case managers assess and treat complex patients. These are patients who may be challenged with medical and behavioral conditions, poor access to care services, as well as chronic illnesses and disabilities, and require multidisciplinary care to regain health and function. With a wealth of information on regulatory requirements, new models of care, integration of services, digital and telemedicine, and new performance measures that are clearly defined for nurses in nursing terminology, chapters outline the steps needed to begin, implement, and use the interventions of the Integrated Case Management approach. All content aligns with the newly revised 2017 Model Care Act, CMSA Standards of Practice 2016 as well as the CMSA Core Curriculum for Case Management Third Edition.

Simulation Scenarios for Nursing Educators: Making it Real
Second Edition was a winner of the AJN Award! Unique to this book, and what sets it apart from other books on simulations and clinical scenarios, are the personal experiences...that the authors bring to the chapters. The authors' passion, enthusiasm, and inspiration are truly reflected and demonstrated in each chapter. Authors talk about lessons learned, teaching strategies, and in-depth research... Key highlights in the book include the practice application of how to develop, implement, and evaluate clinical simulations in your nursing program. The authors make understanding simulation pedagogy an easy journey and one that is exciting that educators will want to try and embrace even when there is hesitation and uncertainty. - Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF; Professor, Dean; George Washington University School of Nursing; From the Foreword When employed as a substitute for real clinical time, simulation scenarios have proven effective in bridging the gap between theory and practice. Written by educators for educators, this book provides all the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to make simulation feasible, enjoyable, and meaningful for students. In this edition, there are 25 new chapters, 20 of them scenarios for all levels and specialties, and 11 of those representing interprofessional education and team training. This acclaimed text for nursing faculty provides detailed, step-by-step guidance on all aspects of clinical simulation. Each scenario is broken down into objectives, pre-scenario checklists, implementation plans, evaluation criteria, debriefing guidelines, and recommendations for further use. Replete with diverse scenarios, this comprehensive resource covers geriatric, pediatric, trauma, obstetric, and community-based patient scenarios. Chapters cover all levels of nursing students from pre-licensure to doctoral level, and contain the authors' own advice and experiences working in simulation around the globe. All scenarios have been updated to adhere to the new best practice simulation standards for design, facilitator and participant criteria, interprofessional criteria, and debriefing processes. A template for creating scenarios spans the text and includes student preparation materials, forms to enhance the realness of the scenario, and checklists for practice assessment and evaluation. The revised edition now includes scenarios easily adaptable to an instructor's own lab, an international perspective, and a section on graduate nursing education and eleven new interdisciplinary clinical scenarios. New to the third edition: 20 brand-new scenarios in anesthesia, midwifery, pediatric, disaster, and other specialty focused situations, plus five new chapters Updated to encompass new simulation pedagogy including best practice standards New scenarios easily adapted to an instructor's own lab Integrating disability into nursing education with standardized patients and the use of IV simulations Interprofessional and international scenarios focused on areas of global concern: obstetric hemorrhage, neonatal hypoglycemia, deteriorating patients A new section on how to write like a nurse in clinical simulation environments Teaching and evaluating therapeutic communication with a review of instruments for assessment Key Features: Includes information on how to integrate simulation into curricula Addresses conceptual and theoretical foundations of simulation in nursing education, including an expanded chapter on the Framework for Simulation Learning in Nursing Education Includes a wide variety of practical scenarios in ready-to-use format with instructions Provides a template for scenario development Delivers recommendations for integration of point-of-care decision-making tools Offers opportunities for enhancing complexity, incorporating interprofessional competencies, and debriefing guidelines Provides insight into pedagogical intergration of simulation throughout every aspect of the nursing curriculum with scenarios mapped to North American standards and the NCLEX-RN Blueprint Includes details on: learning lab and staff development from fundraising and building a lab (Ch. 6), to placement of AV (Ch. 7) to faculty development (Ch. 5) and self-assessment for certification and accreditation (Ch. 54).

Frameworks for Advanced Nursing Practice and Research: Philosophies, Theories, Models, and Taxonomies
Uniquely organized to help readers find and select the best frameworks for their needsThis resource illuminates the daunting task of understanding and applying philosophies, models, theories, and taxonomies in nursing practice and research at the masters or doctoral level. Distinguished by a unique organizational structure, the text is divided into two broad areas of practice/focus; individuals and families (Part II) and communities, populations, and systems (Part III). The frameworks in each area are organized conceptually into 17 chapters, many of which are interdisciplinary, thus not commonly found in nursing theory texts. This unique organizational structure enables readers to acquire both a broad overview of frameworks useful in nursing practice and research, and to focus on frameworks relevant to specific practice areas and concepts of interest.Frameworks for Advanced Nursing Practice and Research also provides foundational knowledge to enhance the nurse's understanding and appreciation of frameworks used in practice and research (Part 1). Application is woven throughout the text and culminates with chapters devoted to the application of frameworks for nurse educators, clinicians, leaders, and researchers. Learner-focused features of the text include application boxes highlighting published studies that have employed selected frameworks, thereby bringing theoretical content into practice. Each chapter also includes objectives, key terms, and a bulleted summary to enhance the learning experience.Key Features:Describes a broad spectrum of philosophies, models, theories, and taxonomies underpinning graduate-level nursing rolesUniquely organized by conceptual areas, thereby integrating nursing and non-nursing frameworksFacilitates easy comparison of frameworks within each conceptual areaDelivers strategies for using theory and discusses integration of theory, research, and practiceIncludes application boxes highlighting published studies, objectives, key terms, and bulleted chapter summary.

An Armful of Babies and a Cup of Tea: Memoirs of a 1950s Health Visitor
For all fans of Call the Midwife - a touching memoir of a young health visitor in postwar England. After serving as a nurse in WW2, Molly Corbally joined the brand new NHS and became one of the first official District Health Visitors, attending to mothers and babies from all walks of life in the picturesque village near Coventry she came to call home. Social work was uncharted territory at the time, and Britain was very much worse for wear - TB, polio, measles and whooping cough were just some of the hazards new babies faced. Social conditions could also add to the problems, at a time when poverty and alcoholism were rife. Armed with only her nursing training, her common sense and a desire to serve, Molly set out to win over a community and provide a new and valuable service in times of great change. As well as the challenges there was also joy and laughter, from the woman who finally had a baby after fifteen years of trying, to the woman who thought she should use marmalade as nappy cream, because the hospital had never taken the label off the jar they were using to store it. Warm, witty and moving, An Armful of Babies is a vivid portrait of rural England in the post-war years, and a testament to an NHS in its own infancy and to what hasn't changed: the bond between parents and their children, and the importance of protecting that.

Practicing these habits will sustain nurses as they meet the challenges of the workplace, the threat of automation, and the incivilities that arise within the nursing community. The volume concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions and exercises designed to help nurses apply concepts in the classroom or in practice. Each chapter combines highly readable explanations of moral theory with real-life examples that can guide nurses in day-to-day practice. Caring Matters Most is an ideal resource for academic or practicing nurses interested in healthcare ethics or philosophy.
