Features
LeMone and Burke’s Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Person-Centred Care
  • Students are supported by a broad range of learning features and opportunities, including pathophysiology illustrated artwork, fast fact boxes, links to National Patient Safety Standards breakouts and much more.
  • The content is organised in a way that introduces medical-surgical nursing, then provides context, before building on that knowledge with specific alterations in human structure and function.
  • The content also provides the Australian context and the nuances, uniqueness and cultural inclusiveness of medical surgical nursing in Australia. Chapter One introduces the concept of culturally competent healthcare with particular attention to the culture and history of Indigenous peoples in Australia. Focus on cultural diversity boxes present cultural nursing in context and highlight the importance of acknowledging the dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights of not only Indigenous Australians but also people from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds. These themes are threaded throughout the text.

New to this edition
LeMone and Burke’s Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Person-Centred Care
  • The Patient Safety Competency Framework (PSCF). Reference to this new and evidence-based framework has been included throughout this text and will help students to focus on skills and knowledge that are directly relevant to safe and effective patient care.
  • The National Patient Safety Standards have been updated in line with the second edition standards (2017) from the Australian Commission on Quality and Health Care. The relevant standards have been added to the chapters where applicable as they relate to patient safety.
  • The authors understand the importance of not only making the text visually engaging but also ensuring that any visual representations accurately reflect nursing in Australia. For this reason the photographs featured in LeMone and Burke's Medical–Surgical Nursing have been carefully selected to ensure that they accurately depict Australian nursing equipment, uniforms, clinical settings, processes and procedures.
  • Chapter 1 introduces the concept of culturally competent healthcare with particular attention to the culture and history of Indigenous peoples in Australia. Focus on cultural diversity boxes present cultural nursing in context and highlight the importance of acknowledging the dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights of not only Indigenous Australians but also people from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds. These themes are threaded throughout the text, with direct reference to the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia's (NMBA) Registered Nurse Standards for Practice (2016), as shown in the mapping documents at the front of the text.
