An Essential Guide to Practice
- Peter Martin - University of Essex, UK
"Thought-provoking, inspiring and a triumph for complementing the much-needed coping mechanisms in nursing/healthcare today." Ibadete Fetahu, Nursing Times
A unique guide to coping and thriving in the NHS today. The book is wholly practice-focused, speaking to current standards of care for patients, and current working conditions for staff in the NHS. Written by academics specialising in mental health, nursing and well-being, each chapter provides guidance and support to pre and post-registration nurses to manage and persevere as a nurse today. This essential first edition includes:
- Case studies
- Reflective practice
- Mindfulness exercises
Thought-provoking, inspiring and a triumph for complementing the much-needed coping mechanisms in nursing/healthcare today. The overriding strength is the comprehensive coverage of the tools needed to survive in nursing environments, excellent case studies and structure of the chapters.
We are seeing more nursing students that are in need of resilience, adaptability and ways to cope in the healthcare field/university. A compelling chapter on ‘Nursing and Mindfulness’ shows how the mindfulness technique can benefit nursing students and enhance their understanding of the GRACE model: Gather attention, Recall Intention, Attune to self/other, Consider what will serve, then Engage and end
This book has a lot of valuable information however we were looking for a text in the Australian context
