LeMone and Burke’s Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Person-Centred Care Volumes 1-3
Provides a comprehensive, contemporary and consistent systems-based approach that engages students and provides the practical knowledge and skills they need to care for adult patients with a focus on person-centred, holistic nursing care.

Designed to:
  • emphasise a person-centred philosophy whereby the person who is the recipient of care is seen as an integral member of the team and consideration of their needs and wishes is paramount
  • foster critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills as the basis for safe clinical practice and nursing excellence
  • recognise the nurse’s role as an essential member of the interprofessional healthcare team.

Critical Conversations for Patient Safety: An Essential Guide for Healthcare Students

A practical text designed for all health professionals. It addresses therapeutic communication (ie communication between health professionals and their patients), communication between health professionals and, crucially, the critical relationship between communication and patient safety.

The product starts with the foundations of the concept of therapeutic communication (i.e. communication between health professionals and their patients), then extends the focus to include communication between health professionals, and critically, the relationship between communication and patient safety.

Berman, Skills in Clinical Nursing is a visual Australian resource to support nurses to achieve competency in the most relevant skills performed in clinical practice, aligned to the NMBA standards for professional practice.

 

The first Australian edition of Skills in Clinical Nursing is a definitive resource that has been designed as a practical and easy-to-navigate reference for both the classroom and clinical practice settings. This text includes 95 of the most important skills performed by nursing students and graduates, organised from simple to complex and written to reflect current evidence-based practice guidelines.

New to this edition
  • 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.
