The award-winning Encyclopedia of Nursing Research, now in its third edition, is the comprehensive resource for tracking developments in the field. With over 20 new areas of research, and meticulous updates of original entries, the encyclopedia presents key terms and concepts and their application to practice.
The fourth edition of this classic dictionary for understanding traditional and new concepts in nursing theory and research encompasses the considerable changes that have occurred in the clinical health sciences since the previous edition was published.
This title presents a much needed guide to the central topics and debates which shape nursing theory, policy and contemporary practice. Highly readable, with clear indexing and cross referencing, this is an ideal book for trainees to turn to for learning more about key issues in nursing practice and education.
This short and accessible introduction provides an invaluable tool with which to think about the ethical values that lie at the heart of medicine. Tony Hope deals with the thorny moral questions such as euthanasia and the morality of killing, and also explores political questions such as: how should health care resources be distributed fairly? Each chapter in this book considers a different issue: genetics, modern reproductive technologies, resource allocation, mental health, medical research, and controversial questions.
This title provides in-depth coverage of a variety of topics with A-Z entries and appendices that have been completely updated and many new words/terms. Entries have been carefully edited and illustrations selected to give a true nursing focus, and photographs have been included for the first time.
