Description

This comprehensive core U.K. textbook is designed to be the ideal basis for foundation nursing studies. Unlike other books, it provides a unique and innovative decision-making approach by integrating the knowledge base from subject areas within the nursing curriculum through a focus on the needs of service users. It emphasizes that such needs provide the focal point for student learning across all fields of nursing practice. The clear format of each chapter identifies the relevant biological, psychosocial, care delivery, professional and ethical knowledge that is needed to inform decision making and to gain the practice knowledge needed for the statutory competencies for registration as a nurse. The reflective knowledge sections explore the complexity and diversity of nursing practice. Each chapter is designed to encourage reflection on practice and critical thinking.
