Professional Issues in Nursing, 5th Edition

Challenges and Opportunities

NOTE: Replace this text with the Full Description. Do not forget to check the Release to Eloquence box in the upper right hand cornerNow enhanced by a modern, colorful design, Professional Issues in Nursing: Challenges & Opportunities 5th Edition features the current and relevant issues facing professional nurses today. Author Dr. Carol Huston and her contributors offer students the opportunity to become aware of issues impacting the healthcare environment from premier experts on the issues covered. Students critically analyze the issues and form their own assessments about the state of nursing and their role as a professional nurse. Our pedagogical features, especially our Discussion Points and Consider This boxes, allow students to join the professional dialogue.
 
Because nursing practice is ever-changing, the text will be heavily revised to represent the latest literature and references on topics. New or updated content has been added throughout the book to reflect cutting-edge trends in health care and nursing education. A new chapter on Health Care Reform in a New Administration will be included in the 5th Edition, which will cover the changes in healthcare delivery and health finance that emerge with the new Trump administration.  A chapter that addresses the ethical issues associated with emerging technologies in health care will be added to this edition. Our chapter on Workplace Violence will be broadened to discuss Healthy Workplace Environments and Civility.
 
This edition will feature a NEW! full color design with additional photographs and drawings to reinforce learning for visual learners or students who digest information more easily when it is accompanied by visual aids. Further, instructors will receive an ENHANCED! test bank to assess students’ knowledge of the material.
 
Each chapter will begin with Learning Objectives and an overview of the professional issue being discussed. Multiple perspectives on each issue are then identified in an effort to reflect the diversity of thought found in the literature as well as espoused by experts in the field and varied professional nursing and health care organizations. Discussion Points encourage readers to pause and reflect on specific questions. These questions can be completed by students independently or used as group work in class. The “Consider This” features also encourage active learning, critical thinking, and values clarification by the users. In addition, at least one research study is profiled in every chapter in “Research Study Fuels the Controversy,” an effort to promote evidence-based analysis of the issue. Each chapter concludes with Conclusions about the issues discussed, questions for additional discussion, and a comprehensive and current reference list. Each chapter also includes multiple displays, boxes, and tables to allow for a good reading experience and to help the user visualize important concepts.

General Information
 
When you buy this book from the Physio Shop you are in fact dealing directly with one of the world's largest medical publishers, Wolters Kluver Health (WKH). WKH is the parent of companies including Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and the Anatomical Chart Company.
 
We also try to deliver to you anywhere in the world. Just register and login to the shop to see the shipping price to your destination. These costs are heavily subsidized by the publishers. Unfortunately we are restricted to non-USA sales.
 
We work directly with WKH and their distribution channel in the UK, NBN International, to deliver your items. This means there is no middle-man to slow up your delivery. If it is in print/stock and is in their warehouse then they'll get it out to you asap. Your orders are sent directly to the warehouse and are actioned usually within 48hrs during the working week. Sometimes charts and models are on regular re-stocking due to popularity however this is replenished on a weekly basis.
 
If any one item in your purchase is delayed NBN will typically send you what they have in stock and will send on the remainder as soon as it arrives. This is at no additional shipping costs to you. Sending and arriving are however two different things. We send as soon as we can. The mail man and delivery services mean orders can take anything from 48hrs to 3 weeks to arrive depending where in the world you are.
 
Even better, we currently maintain a flat fee structure for shipping of products from WKH. Buy as many books as you like the we will still charge you the one shipping fee. Perhaps club together with friends if you are after the same title to save even more on shipping!
 
All orders are actioned from the UK. The UK and Europe can therefore expect more speedy deliveries than those further afield. Rest assured we'll get it to you as fast as the mailing systems allow.
 
You are also provided with a direct email and phone link on your order invoice that will link you with the person/s responsible for your delivery should you have any queries after purchase.
 
Many thanks for choosing the Physio Shop and happy reading!
