Book Summary:

This book collects together 12 previously unpublished conference and seminar presentations which cover a broad range of topics, including evidence-based practice, reflective practice, practice development, nurse education, nursing scholarship and a variety of philosophical issues applied to nursing. The common theme uniting all of these contributions is the assertion that the research-based technical-rational approach to nursing and other health care disciplines is failing our patients, our students and our profession. In a series of closely argued papers, the book challenges some of the taken-for-granted assumptions that underpin modern evidence-based nursing practice, research and education. It proposes a philosophy of nursing that unites practitioners, academics, teachers and researchers in a person-centred human science of nursing that directly addresses the needs of each individual patient. This book will be of interest to final year undergraduates, Masters and doctoral students, practising nurses undertaking further study, nurse academics and researchers, as well as anyone who is searching for a better way of ‘doing’ nursing.

Book Summary:

"This is an excellent addition to the nursing theory literature and one that focuses on the needs of the new DNP role and knowledge development. As the preface states, it encourages the development of 'theory for practice in practice,' and could help to close the divide that exists between theorists/researchers/academics and practice."Score: 97, 5 stars--Doody's The current paradigm of nursing knowledge suggests theory is developed outside of practice, then handed down to the practitioner to practice. This unique text is for students and faculty at the DNP level to engage in developing nursing theory in order to directly guide and improve practice. The content in this book provides strategies for scholarly practice as well as theories for students to develop or modify to fit into their own practice. This book guides students in learning to think in a new way about nursing theory development as it relates to nursing practice. This book provides graduate nursing students with a guide for practice, presents new perspectives and insights that may arise from frustrating clinical problems, and gives students the opportunity to rethink and reformulate existing theory. Key Features: Provides teachers and nursing students with information about the development and use of theory to improve nursing practice Includes glossary of key terms for reference Presents discussion questions and activities to stimulate thinking Identifies reflection points in selected chapters to help students assimilate the content and relate it to their own work

Book Summary:

New York City was the site of a remarkable cultural and artistic renaissance during the 1950s and '60s. In the first monograph to treat all five major poets of the New York School-John Ashbery, Barbara Guest, Kenneth Koch, Frank O'Hara, and James Schuyler-Mark Silverberg examines this rich period of cross-fertilization between the arts. Silverberg uses the term 'neo-avant-garde' to describe New York School Poetry, Pop Art, Conceptual Art, Happenings, and other movements intended to revive and revise the achievements of the historical avant-garde, while remaining keenly aware of the new problems facing avant-gardists in the age of late capitalism. Silverberg highlights the family resemblances among the New York School poets, identifying the aesthetic concerns and ideological assumptions they shared with one another and with artists from the visual and performing arts. A unique feature of the book is Silverberg's annotated catalogue of collaborative works by the five poets and other artists. To comprehend the coherence of the New York School, Silverberg demonstrates, one must understand their shared commitment to a reconceptualized idea of the avant-garde specific to the United States in the 1950s and '60s, when the adversary culture of the Beats was being appropriated and repackaged as popular culture. Silverberg's detailed analysis of the strategies the New York School poets used to confront the problem of appropriation tells us much about the politics of taste and gender during the period, and suggests new ways of understanding succeeding generations of artists and poets.

Book Summary:

How has technology changed the art and science of nursing practice? Many facets of nursing practice have stayed constant over the years such as the way we advocate for our patients and the art of caring for our patients. However, nursing practice has evolved over the years especially in the bedside delivery of state of the art nursing care. Technology at the bedside has forced nurse educators to change the ways in which we always have taught nursing students. Technology has also begun to change the methods used in the actual bedside nursing care. In this issue, you will hear from some of the nursing experts in areas of nursing care that has changed in either the delivery of care or method of assessing care of the patient. Nursing experts will describe some of the historical changes and intrigue you in the changes expected to come to the bedside. Why is this issue important? First, we gain insight from a review of where we have been and nurses tend to reminisce on our past as well as romance our historical roots. Second, technology is ever changing and it is good practice to keep abreast of what is happening in other areas of nursing so that we can apply others successes in our own specific areas of nursing. Third, informatics in nursing is a growing field and nursing must embrace technology and learn to adapt various methods of delivery so that we can appropriately care for and advocate for our patients. With the changes in our national healthcare system, we must encourage nurses to try out new methods of delivery as well as encourage their ideas of how nursing can change. The articles in this issue reflect these changes.

A Caring Approach in Nursing Administration

Book Summary:

Current mainstream books and publicity about management and administration in health care are concerned with the takeover of health care by managed-care organizations. Many provide lots of quick and externally focused answers. Many of them are economically driven, to the exclusion of humans, values, ethics, and the human spirit of all those who pass through systems as deliverers and receivers of care. On the other hand, there is a new generation of works that address new forms of administration and leadership-works that inspire and evoke foundational changes in health care and forms of organizational leadership and management. This work by Dr. Jan Nyberg is guided by a lifelong career of administration and management that is informed by deeper human dimensions of caring, and more lasting approaches to change than quick-fix, economic takeovers. Jan Nyberg, an experienced nursing administrator, scholar, and educator, knows another way-from the inside out rather than the outside in. She brings forth her wisdom and knowledge, experiences, and insights so that others may now grasp another way to transform systems for delivery of human caring and healing. This work informs, instructs, and inspires; it invites nurse leaders and other health administrators to reach for what might be, rather than succumbing to what already is.

Book Summary:

While vast numbers of nurses across the globe contribute in all areas of healthcare delivery from primary care to acute and long-term care in community settings, there are significant differences in how they are educated, as well as the precise nature of their practice. This comprehensive handbook provides a research-informed and international perspective on the critical issues in contemporary nurse education. As an applied discipline, nursing is implemented differently depending on the social, political and cultural climate in any given context. These factors impact on education, as much as on practice, and are reflected in debates around the value of accredited programmes, and on-the-job training, apprenticeship, undergraduate and postgraduate pathways into nursing. Engaging with these debates amongst others, the authors collected here discuss how, through careful design and delivery of nursing curricula, nurses can be prepared to understand complex care processes, complex healthcare technologies, complex patient needs and responses to therapeutic interventions, and complex organizations. The book discusses historical perspectives on how nurses should be educated; contemporary issues facing educators; teaching and learning strategies; the politics of nurse education; education for advanced nursing practice; global approaches; and educating for the future. Bringing together leading authorities from across the world to reflect on past, present and future approaches to nurse education and nursing pedagogy, this handbook provides a cutting-edge overview for all educators, researchers and policy-makers concerned with nurse education.
