The Conduct of Care Summary


The Conduct of Care: Understanding Nursing Practice by Joanna Latimer

This book draws attention to how nurses organize ward life. In addition to revealing the enormous range of skills that make up the nursing practice, the analysis details how nurses' conduct does more than deliver care to the individual patients. This book evokes the complexity of nursing practice in today's health service. It widens the debate about the delivery of nursing care by examining, in detail, the daily activities of nurses in the hospital setting, and reflecting on patients' experience and care. Information on how current care is organized, where the tensions lie and the issues that make change difficult to implement are included. The text also gives suggestions on how future care could be organized.
