Nursing Models: Application to Practice

£9.95

Product description

FOREWARD by Sister Callista Roy. As a discipline nursing has made great strides in recent decades inknowledge-based practice as theoretical frameworks were developed to guide practice and research. Good, up-to-date literature that reflects these developments makes an important contribution to the use of knowledge in practice. This book makes a significant contribution to the available literature. First, it is a fresh conceptualisation of a book on nursing models. It initially offers a clear and direct discussion of what models are, which can be useful for the neophyte who does not have this background or for the experienced scholar searching for the words to articulate the meaning and significance of nursing models. Higher level concepts such as paradigms are explained and integrated into the reader's understanding. A brief history provides a context for appreciating the work that has gone before and the challenges that lie ahead. By selecting seven major models the authors succeed in describing and critiquing each model in sufficient detail and clarity for both beginners and advanced readers. It goes into depth both on the theoretical application to practice and gives case studies as well as pertinent literature reviews of use of the model in practice as well as in research. The authors provide a teaching instrument that is greatly needed in nursing education in both academic and clinical settings. They have managed to provide the emphasis that is needed to move theory-based practice to a new level. The reader obtains a more comprehensive view of theory-based practice by comparing how each model approaches given clinical situations in settings from the hospital to the home and community. The work can provide the basis for highlighting the role of nurses in interdisciplinary team approaches to the increasingly complex health challenges of our time.
