Competencies for Advanced Nursing Practice is the first and definitive book to deliver guidance for practitioners working to be recognized for their advanced nursing practice. Written by experienced academics and advanced nurse practitioners from a variety of clinical backgrounds, this handbook will support nurses on their journey towards advanced nursing practice and provide detailed information on achieving the competencies within each of the seven domains outlined in the RCN and the NMC's proposed Standards of Proficiency for Advanced Nurse Practitioners: the nurse-patient relationship; respecting culture and diversity; management of patient health/illness status; the education function; professional role; managing and negotiating health care delivery systems; and monitoring and ensuring the quality of health care practice. The text concludes with a section on how practice can be recorded and used in the portfolioing and accreditation process, how to collect and record evidence and how nurses can be supported and facilitated through this process. Aimed at the professional nurse working towards an advanced level of practice, the nurse already practising at this level and seeking accreditation and also the student and newly qualified nurse giving early consideration to their future career, this book offers clear and user-friendly guidance for anybody wishing to undertake this standard of nursing practice.

Is nursing in England experiencing a fundamental moral crisis? A number of recent high-profile reports about the state of nursing care in English hospitals certainly add weight to this argument; however, although the intense media attention on the decline of compassion in nursing has highlighted some of the issues, it has neither explained the underlying causes nor signalled a realistic solution. In this timely and important book, a collection of expert authors with a wealth of academic and practice experience examine the multitude of areas that need to be understood, and issues that must be addressed, before the policy recommendations triggered by the latest furore can be realised. These include: • Policy perspectives on compassion • Analysis of the historical roots of the concept of compassion • Examination of compassion in a contemporary nursing context, including patients' perspectives • The organisation of services to deliver compassion • Approaches to supporting staff to provide compassionate care. Compassion in nursing has become an issue of national attention in England; however, there has been a tendency for sensationalised reports to win out over analysis. This book explores the issues involved in more detail and depth. It is an essential resource for nursing students, practising nurses and health service managers, and anyone else interested in creating a compassionate health service.

This book offers a practical approach to guide nurses in the art and science of renal care. It is holistic as well as technical therapeutic and compassionate in its approach. Acute and chronic renal failure renal osteodystrophy and other selected diseases are comprehensively discussed. The nurse's role with regard to specific treatments such as peritoneal dialysis haemodialysis plasma exchange and haemoperfusion as well as organ transplantation procedures are discussed in detail and a section relating specifically to paediatric care is included. The final section of the book is devoted to the use of complementary therapies and alternative medicine in renal disease. 'The book lays the foundation on which nurses can build their evidence-based practice and knowledge skills and enhance patient care. The aim of this book is to provide a practical holistic guide for nurses to the skills and knowledge required by them to care for their patients. It covers the renal patients experiences both physically and psychologically incorporating the dialysis therapies of acute and chronic failure on to renal transplantation. Nursing renal patients within an acute hospital setting a chronic dialysis unit or a satellite unit places many challenges on the nurse caring for them today. I therefore hope that this book will provide the knowledge needed by those working in the field of renal nursing and that it will be used as a resource in renal units throughout the UK' Avril Redmond Chair of RCN Nephrology Nurses Forum in the Foreword

Nursing Informatics supports nurses, consumers, patients, the interprofessional healthcare team, and other stakeholders in a wide variety of roles and settings to achieve desired outcomes. This is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology. An Introduction to Nursing Informatics, Evolution and Innovation, 2nd Edition is the ideal gateway to all the professional possibilities this continuously evolving discipline has to offer. Describing the evolution of nursing informatics from its origins to current practice in today’s complex, diverse healthcare environment, this book offers the next generation of nurse informaticists an understanding of the discipline, best practices, and its scope of influence in healthcare. The book also explores Nursing Informatics as it is evolving into the future, including technology creation and implementation and the development of influential policies and best practices. Special features include descriptions of the ‘a day in the life’ from informatics nurses in multiple roles and fields of influence, including academia, research, clinical settings, the executive suite, consulting, and government, as well as an Appendix featuring case profiles.

New to this edition is a chapter providing tips and advice for those trying to find their first nursing informatics job or are changing their careers.
