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.

Presented in a consistent format for ease of use, each case study includes an overview, background, relevant research, and in-depth information on its significance as a critical global issue. This text covers critical, current topics such as health care for transgender individuals, refugees, and patients on the autism spectrum, as well as ongoing problems like access to clean water, HIV/AIDS, and human trafficking. End-of-chapter exercises reinforce content and supplementary instructor materials are available.

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.
