Description

A crucial component to nursing excellence is the development and maintenance of a positive, caring relationship between the nurse and patient. Before this book, all other caring texts have been solely theoretical. "Quality Care" is the first to apply theoretical knowledge of caring in a practical way. Clear and concise charts, forms, illustrations, tables, and decision trees present essential information to guide treatment planning and documentation.Duffy also explains how to implement her very own Quality-Caring Model, which combines evidence-based practice with caring. Each chapter contains key terms, case studies, references to support further research, and application chapters also contain useful exercises for nurses.Chapters include: A Framework for Quality Nursing Practice; Caring for Patients and Families; Teaching Quality-Caring; and, Evaluating Quality-Caring.

Dedicated time spent with patients and families in clinical settings is often limited, rushed, and impersonal. How can nurses develop more positive, caring relationships with their patients, and help to improve the quality of patient care at large? This book addresses this critical question by presenting Joanne R. Duffy's Quality-Caring Model?-the result of 35 years of clinical experience and educational acumen. This values-based model will bring caring back into the foreground of nursing practice by providing revised curricula for educational programs, and outlining the core caring principles for nurse administrators.
Key Features: Establishes ""Relationship-Centered Caring,"" with discussions on how to care for the self, patients and families, each other, and communities Offers multiple case examples, and includes reflective questions and applications for use in educational programs, workshops, conferences, and clinical practice Demonstrates how the Quality-Caring Model? can be implemented in clinical practice, nursing education, research, and nursing leadership settings Includes appendices that discuss how caring can improve patient safety, outline course objectives, and explain how to assess and measure caring in your facility Written in clear, accessible language, this book will be an invaluable resource to nursing students, nursing scholars, clinical nurses, nurse educators, nurse researchers, and nurse leaders.
