The Art and Science of Personalising Care with Older People with Diabetes
This unique book is intended for all health professionals caring for older people with diabetes such as specialist and general nurses, doctors, primary care practioners and dieteticians. Although there is an increasing body of work about personalised care, no publications were identified that encompass the focus and scope of the proposed book. The global population is ageing and increasing age is a key risk factor for diabetes. Older people with diabetes are often vulnerable, have complex care needs and often have cognitive changes, which makes personalising care challenging for health professionals. Thus, this is an internationally relevant book filling a gap in the current literature. This is a practical and updated book that will use an engaging and easy to read narrative style. It challenges readers to reflect in and on their practice. It encompasses people with diabetes' and authors' stories, which are known to have a special interest to readers, make it easier to apply the information to practice, enhance learning, and hence the relevance and value of the book. It is relevant to advocacy organisations as well as managers and service planners. Researchers and scientists may find relevant information on grant and ethics applications, research protocols, plain language statements for potential participants and operationalising research protocols.

Care Planning: A guide for nurses
This clear and intuitive introduction to care planning for nurses explains the benefits of holistic, individualised care planning from a professional and clinical perspective. Using the ASPIRE model, it guides the reader step-by-step through a problem-solving approach to care, from assessing patients and identifying their needs, to planning goals and interventions, and evaluating progress. The book is structured to explain the theory of care planning in relation to a number of common nursing models and then show how the theory can best be put into practice. It draws on recent research to show how nurses can develop individualised care plans from scratch or use and adapt a range of `off-the-shelf' tools. It is written in a clear, succinct and down-to-earth writing style, which will put students immediately at their ease, and is rich with pedagogic features, including: `Stop and think' boxes to check understanding; boxed `Practice examples' to illustrate points made; `Research summary' boxes to highlight relevant and important studies; `What have you learnt so far?' features to recap on key points of discussion; mini care plans; regular activities to encourage the reader to apply what they have learnt to particular practice scenarios. This is a go-to text for all pre-registration nursing students taking courses on the theory and practice of effective healthcare delivery.

Care Coordination in the NICU: Implementing Family-Centered Nursing Care for Optimal Outcomes
Focuses on nurturing the emotional health of patients and families to ensure improved outcomes. This innovative clinical practice resource for neonatal nurses embodies family-centered care strategies for optimal outcomes through every phase of the NICU experience. While rigorous programs provide the knowledge and skills to care for the physical needs of high-risk mothers and neonates, NICU practitioners often find themselves unprepared to support the emotional health of these patients and their families. Care Coordination in the NICU provides the education, inspiration, and resources to NICU health professionals so they can learn how to be emotionally supportive to their patient's entire family unit. The book addresses a variety of challenging patient and family issues that occur in the NICU as they relate to care coordination throughout the process. Each chapter focuses on a particular area of the perinatal/neonatal family journey, and includes current medical research, clinical examples, and recommendations for best practice alongside case studies that depict families experiencing a perinatal challenge. Most valuable of all, each chapter also includes stories directly from the source, the families, who have experienced the fear, isolation, and uncertainly of an NICU experience, and have greatly benefited from the emotional support of caring practitioners. Key Features: Examines the gamut of challenging patient and family issues that occur in the NICU as they relate to care coordination throughout the process Helps practitioners to incorporate family-centered care into their daily practices Discusses effective listening and communication strategies for families in crisis Includes examples of practice improvement strategies to improve clinical outcome and reduce the risk of re-hospitalization Provides a Case-Based Learning section depicting real-world scenarios for discussion and problem-solving Includes links to abundant resources and educational material Contains chapters on palliative care and bereavement and supporting patients with special challenges.

Care Planning: A guide for nurses
This clear and intuitive introduction to care planning for nurses explains the benefits of holistic, individualised care planning from a professional and clinical perspective. Using the ASPIRE model, it guides the reader step-by-step through a problem-solving approach to care, from assessing patients and identifying their needs, to planning goals and interventions, and evaluating progress. The book is structured to explain the theory of care planning in relation to a number of common nursing models and then show how the theory can best be put into practice. It draws on recent research to show how nurses can develop individualised care plans from scratch or use and adapt a range of `off-the-shelf' tools. It is written in a clear, succinct and down-to-earth writing style, which will put students immediately at their ease, and is rich with pedagogic features, including: `Stop and think' boxes to check understanding; boxed `Practice examples' to illustrate points made; `Research summary' boxes to highlight relevant and important studies; `What have you learnt so far?' features to recap on key points of discussion; mini care plans; regular activities to encourage the reader to apply what they have learnt to particular practice scenarios. This is a go-to text for all pre-registration nursing students taking courses on the theory and practice of effective healthcare delivery.

Nurses Making Policy: From Bedside to Boardroom
Written by those in the know-exceptional nurse leaders in practice, education, and politics-this is a practical how-to guide written to help advanced students and nurse leaders develop health policy skills to advocate for patients from the bedside to the larger political arena. Co-published with the ANA, the book examines the pivotal role of nurses involved in health policy and describes the requisite steps for facilitating policy change. The second edition addresses the Trump administration's impact on health care, including information on the increased need for primary care providers, how full practice authority has been implemented in different states, the need for an enhanced RN role in ambulatory care, and many other topics. It updates the impact of the Future of Nursing Report, the integral role of nurses on the front lines of health care, and presents cases focused on nurses' role in containing the Zika virus spread. The second edition also discusses committees within health care institutions working on legislative proposals regarding the development of policy at the community level. Using descriptive case histories, the book delves into the increasing role of nurses in elected or appointed positions. A particularly timely contribution focuses on evaluating policy sources, such as Fake News. Additionally, the book describes how research can be used to strengthen policy initiatives, and clarifies the process of identifying issues that need a policy solution. Also covered are strategies for working with the media, the process of taking a leadership role, using policy to eliminate health inequities, and maintaining and expanding momentum.

Physical Assessment of the Newborn: A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination
The newly revised, 25th Anniversary Edition of this definitive publication on neonatal care continues to illustrate how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a tremendous range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment. Many problems in the neonate can be noticed early by an astute nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician with honed assessment skills, long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them. Physical Assessment of the Newborn, Sixth Edition addresses the physical, physiologic, neurologic, and behavioral implications of a thorough assessment, and explains how healthcare providers can reduce the risks associated with the transition to extrauterine life and the neonatal period. Grounded with a scientific basis and rationale, each system assessment represents the most up-to-date clinical content. Because assessment skills are such an integral aspect of practice, many individuals take them for granted, yet all health professionals who perform newborn examinations, including nurses, neonatal and pediatric nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physicians, and therapists can benefit from the essential content presented in this book, as well as students preparing for advanced practice roles in neonatal care. New to the Sixth Edition: Provides clinical updates throughout Presents an Enhanced Art Program Offers an all-new chapter on the Opioid-Dependent Neonate Includes an Image Bank and Power Points Key Features: Addresses all key aspects of newborn assessment Provides a well-organized evaluation of individual body systems Assist practitioners in identifying infant state, behavioral clues, and signs of pain Examines the tremendous range of variation among newborns of different gestational ages Provides Antepartum Tests and Intrapartum Monitoring Written in an easy-to-read, user-friendly style Contains tables, figures, and numerous full color photos and illustrations

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.

The History of Nursing and Nurses of Long Ago
Medicine in ancient times was associated with magic and the supernatural, but it was within monastic hospitals that nursing as we know it today really began. With the Reformation, nursing became increasingly secularised, and was generally considered a low-status job until high standards of professional nursing were established by Florence Nightingale. Nursing continued to advance with the work of many other nursing pioneers and reformers, and their stories will continue to inspire the nurses of today and of the future.
