Critical Care Nursing: the Humanised Approach

Sara Jane White,

Critical Care Nursing: the Humanised Approach
 

About the eBook

Tait and White provide a much-needed introduction to the complex field of critical care nursing for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Covering the essential aspects of critical care nursing, students are asked to consider the biopsychosocial triggers of critical illness, and are walked through a number of different patient scenarios.

Reacting to the Francis Report and other inquiries into standards of care, Tait and White’s humanising approach to critical care places equal emphasis on the ′head, hand and heart′ knowledge; evidence, technical and ethical.

The book’s depth of clinical knowledge is built and cemented through extended case studies of critically ill patients with a variety of needs. This breadth, along with the author’s unique approach prepares students for courses and assignments in critical care, as well as preparing critical care nurses for clinical decision making and practice.

A must-have for anyone studying or working in critical care nursing.
