Watson's Clinical Nursing and Related Sciences Summary


Watson's Clinical Nursing and Related Sciences by Mike Walsh

"Watson's Clinical Nursing and Related Sciences" has become established as a 'classic' in nursing literature. This edition continues to provide this comprehensive support, but also reflects the changing context of nursing care. It reflects the growing importance of primary health and the community, the move towards evidence-based practice and the importance of the multi-disciplinary team. The text is designed to emphasise the importance of holistic, patient-focused nursing and addresses issues of assessment, patient problems and goals throughout. The text is organised into three parts: Part 1 - the Context of Care introduces the main client groups and discusses the fundamental which underpin sound nursing. It also includes new chapters on Communication and Primary health care. Part 2 - Key Clinical Principles - the chapters in this section focus on those issues which are relevant to nursing care regardless of the specific clinical problem. New chapters are included on Pharmacology and Patient Investigations. Part 3 - Caring for Patients with Specific Disorders - this section covers the comprehensive range of clinical issues. Key themes which run throughout these chapters include: involving the family; discharge planning; and, placing nursing within the context of the multi-disciplinary tam and evidence-based practice. Each chapter is organised to address the key aspects which will underpin sound nursing care: A&P; major pathologies and their effects; review of medical approaches to treatment; nursing assessment of the patient; and, nursing management in acute phase and requirements after discharge including use of clinical guidelines. Clearly written and well-organised to support study, the text also features case studies and sample critical pathways and care studies. End-of-chapter questions related to these aspects will encourage problem based learning and reflection on practice. Every chapter includes extensive 2 colour artwork and is supported by current references and suggestions for further reading.
