Ethics in Participatory Research for Health and Social Well-Being: Cases and Commentaries
Participatory research is well-established as an approach involving people with a direct interest in, or experience of, the issue being studied in carrying out research. However, it raises unique and challenging ethical issues. Traditional concerns with respect for the rights to confidentiality, consent, privacy and protection of `research informants' do not translate easily into participatory research. Boundaries between researchers and those researched are often blurred; research trajectories may be emergent and unpredictable; and major ethical issues revolve around partnership, power, equality and respect for diverse knowledges. The book introduces the key ethical issues in participatory research, drawing on ethical theory and relevant literature before presenting seven substantive chapters, each on a different theme, such as power, ownership, confidentiality and boundaries. The chapters feature an introductory overview of the topic with reference to the literature, followed by four real-life case examples written by participatory researchers and short commentaries on each case. Drawn from around the world (from Denmark to Tanzania), the cases illustrate a range of ethical issues, outlining how they were handled and the reflections and feelings of the contributors. Focusing on developing ethical awareness, confidence and courage to act in ethically challenging situations in everyday research practice, this book is an invaluable resource for all participatory researchers.

Nursing Adolescents and Young Adults with Cancer: Developing Knowledge, Competence and Best Practice
This book describes and explains how caring for adolescents and young adults with cancer (AYA) has developed into what is now a recognized and distinct field of nursing practice. It captures current innovative nursing practices and interventions which have developed over the past 25 years across the globe and are supported by research and evidence achieved in many European and international oncology settings. By outlining and describing educational needs of the AYA cancer nursing profession, this book supports its education and professional development for the nursing profession and serves to develop and disseminate nurses' competencies worldwide. During the last decade, AYA have gained increased attention in healthcare. Today, it is recognized that AYA with cancer have distinct needs that are different to both children and older adults. Young people are in a unique developmental and transitional phase of their lives; thus, their treatment, perspectives and experiences have been addressed in research and the body of knowledge is growing accordingly. Some books are available that describe AYA cancer care, service delivery and aspects of age appropriate care but this volume will be the first to focus on how nurses contribute to AYA cancer care in practice. It will appeal to the AYA clinical nurses in cancer care, as well as to multidisciplinary healthcare professionals and healthcare professionals who support formal nursing education programmes, training and development in practice.

Quality Caring in Nursing and Health Systems: Implications for Clinicians, Educators, and Leaders
Quality Caring in Nursing and Health Systems, Third Edition delivers a detailed framework of the Quality Caring Model (c), a theory that analyzes the relationships among the self, the community served, patients and families, and the health care team. As the population requiring healthcare increases, so does the room for error and the demand for patient-centered care. The health system, focused on procedures, protocols, technology, and lower costs, continues to inflict unnecessary harms upon already vulnerable patients and their families. Nurses, as the largest group of health care professionals that spend the longest time with patients and families, are in a unique position to advance new relationship-centric approaches to health care. This text focuses on the practical application of the Quality Caring Model, featuring new examples of ways to embed caring into the health care environment. An abundance of practice analyses and reflective exercises reinforce the book's content. Written for nursing students, clinicians, educators, and leaders, this text delves into the intricacies of relational health care. Chapters apply the model to patients and families and provide optimal learning strategies to inform quality-caring competencies. Case studies, interviews, exemplars, relevant lessons, and suggested improvements woven throughout the text push the model further than theory and into practice. New to the Third Edition: Updates and clarifies the Quality Caring Model to improve the safety and quality of health systems Examines the continuing quality crisis in health care Demonstrates the model's application in clinical, educational, and leadership practice Includes practice analyses at the end of each chapter Discusses how nurses can work in creative ways to implement caring in their practice as per IOM Future of Nursing Report Provides interviews with practicing nurses reflecting the challenges and strategies needed to implement caring in our technopharmacological system Key Features: Examines the evolution of the Quality Caring Model, its key concepts, and the clinical, educational, and leadership implications for application Features interviews with practicing nurses that reflect challenges and successful strategies Includes case studies and practical insights from diverse community and academic health centers Includes learning objectives, boxed calls to action, key summary points and reflective exercises Offers user-friendly visual images and charts Focuses on the challenge of creating value Facilitates Magnet designation

Florence Nightingale, Nursing, and Health Care Today
Contributes new insights to Nightingale's relevance for nursing today.This in-depth analysis of Nightingale's legacy goes beyond established scholarship to examine her lesser known-and arguably even more important-writings beyond Notes on Nursing. The book demonstrates afresh her unparalleled and ongoing influence on professional nursing, on the core concepts of health, disease, and access to care as we understand them today. It introduces readers to the real Florence Nightingale - who pioneered evidence-based health care, campaigned for hospital safety, promoted economic opportunities for women, and mentored two generations of nursing leaders.The first part of the book focuses on Nightingale's core nursing concepts: gender and women's issues, education, health promotion, infection control, professional ethics, pediatrics, and palliative care, and how they have transcended time to influence professional nursing today. The author draws on comments from current nursing and medical literature to demonstrate the ongoing relevance of Nightingale's work. In the second part of the book, the author presents key writings by Nightingale, including the little-known background work that shaped her iconic Notes on Nursing. It goes on to cover key later writings, which show how her ideas evolved with advances in medical science and nursing practice.Key Features:Expands on established scholarship to reveal Nightingale's contributions to theory, science, and policy in greater breadth and depthDemonstrates the remarkable relevance of her work to nursing issues todayNightingale's core nursing concepts of health promotion, disease prevention, and access to careDisseminates Nightingale writing especially relevant to nursing leaders and policy advocates.

Researching Quality in Care Transitions: International Perspectives
This book is concerned with the complexities of achieving quality in care transitions. The organization and accomplishment of high quality care transitions relies upon the coordination of multiple professionals, working within and across multiple care processes, settings and organizations, each with their own distinct ways of working, profile of resources, and modes of organizing. In short, care transitions might easily be regarded as complex activities that take place within complex systems, which can make accomplishing high quality care challenging. As a subject of enquiry, care transitions are approached from many research, improvement and policy perspectives: from group psychology and human factors to social and political theory; from applied process re-engineering projects to exploratory ethnographic studies; from large-scale policy innovations to local improvements initiatives. This collection will provide a unique cross-disciplinary and multi-level analysis, where each chapter presents a particular depth of insight and analysis, and together offer a holistic and detail understand of care transitions.

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.

The Aesthetic Experience of Dying: The Dance to Death
Structured around a personal account of the illness and death of the author's partner, Jane, this book explores how something hard to bear became a threshold to a world of insight and discovery. Drawing on German Idealism and Jane's own research in the area, The Aesthetic Experience of Dying looks at the notion of life as a binary synthesis, or a return enhanced, as a way of coming to understand death. Binary synthesis describes the interplay between dynamically opposing pairs of concepts - such as life and death - resulting in an enhanced version of one of them to move forward in a new cycle of the process. Yet what relevance does this elegant word game have to the shocking diagnosis of serious illness? Struggling to balance reason with sense, thought with feeling, this book examines the experience of caring for someone from diagnosis to death and is illustrated with examples of the return enhanced. The concluding chapter outlines how the tension of Jane's dying has been resolved as the rhythmic patterns of the lifeworld have been understood through the process of reflecting on the experience. This creative and insightful book will appeal to those interested in the medical humanities. It will also be an important reference for practising and student health professionals.

Partiality and Justice in Nursing Care
Partiality and Justice in Nursing Care examines the conflicting normative claims of partiality and impartiality in nursing care, looking in depth at how to reconcile reasonable concerns for one particular patient with equally important concerns for the maximisation of health-related welfare for all with relevant nursing-care needs, in a resource-limited setting. Drawing on moral philosophy, this book explores how discussions of partiality and impartiality in moral philosophy can have relevance to the professional context of clinical nursing care as well as in nursing ethics in general. It develops a framework for normative nursing ethics that incorporates a notion of permissible partiality, and specifies which concerns an ethics of nursing care should entail when balancing partialist and impartialist concerns. At the same time, Nordhaug argues that this partiality must also be constrained by both principled and context-sensitive assessments of patients' needs, as well as of the role-relative deontological restriction of minimising harm, something that could be mitigated by institutional and organisational arrangements. This thought-provoking volume is an important contribution to nursing ethics and philosophy.

Designing and Teaching Online Courses in Nursing
Despite astronomical growth in the number of online nursing programs currently available, little support is provided for faculty on how to teach in that environment. While most assume that the knowledge and skills required for classroom teaching are readily translatable to teaching online, significant differences exist. Affordances provided by the online environment promote reflection and engaging with the content in a deep and meaningful way that factors in adult students' strengths as self-directed, motivated, and goal-driven learners. This resource provides step-by-step instructions for RN-BSN, masters, DNP, and PhD faculty on how to teach online effectively, engage their students, and foster success for both student and teacher.Teaching Online Courses in Nursing offers practical information on every aspect of teaching an online course. Foundational educational theories and concepts including new insights from cognitive psychology are explained and linked in such a way that operationalizing them during course design makes good sense. The core sections of the text focus on online course design that includes drafting course objectives and a syllabus and crafting discussion questions or cases. Key to teaching an online course is understanding and being comfortable with facilitation strategies in order to maintain a balance between being present in the course and not getting in the way of learning. Worksheets with guiding questions, discussion tracking tools, and other instructor resources will assist readers in developing the best approach for designing and teaching a specific online course.Key Features:Worksheets to guide each step of the process of designing and teaching a course onlineIncludes best practices in online education and the latest researchFeatures the outcomes-based approach of Wiggins and McTighe (2005), re-conceptualized for online course developmentTake-Away summaries at the end of each chapter sum up the key points
