About this book
Challenges in Clinical Practice aims to support nurses and other health care workers in taking the health care agenda forward. With the constant bombardment of changes in policy initiatives, and the accompanying challenges which face nurses and other health care professionals this book will be a welcome asset to a strained labour market. It addresses the key issues and critical challenges facing the health care services today such as clinical governance, managing change, supervision in practice and research based practice.
Nurses represent the fastest growing users of IT and as such the importance and simplicity of IT in supporting current challenges is also explored. The demystification of IT is brilliantly executed here and useful samplers are provided. Central to all changes are the needs of clients and patients, and partnerships in care - the power bases of service provision. The complex realities of this are probed, sometimes disconcertingly, within this important text.
Written and edited by key professionals in the field, this text is an invaluable resource for pre- and post-registration students, those in middle and senior management positions and all teaching staff within the health sector. It is essential reading for anyone who wants to accept the challenge of providing the best in health care services.
