How to Thrive as a Newly Qualified Nurse (Paperback): Carol Forde-Johnston How to Thrive as a Newly Qualified Nurse (Paperback)
Carol Forde-Johnston
R395 Discovery Miles 3 950 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

From reviews: "...This book reads like you've got the loveliest mentor you've ever had holding your hand through the transition from student nurse to qualified nurse. Just reading it made me feel calmer and better prepared about my imminent start. In my opinion Carol Forde-Johnston's book is the best transition book I've read." Sharon Sandford, STaR Project How to Thrive as a Newly Qualified Nurse provides a structured programme of support for nursing students and newly qualified nurses during their first year qualified. Packed with practical examples, tips and advice, and featuring vignettes from recently qualified nurses, this book will help you to: * Choose your first nursing post and secure the job you really want * Structure your learning and development in the early stages of your career * Work in a team, prioritise your care-giving and delegate to others * Understand safe staffing, patient acuity and dependency tools, care planning, and risk assessment tools * Learn how to escalate concerns and report incidents. Here's what some of our student and NQN reviewers said: "The writing style and tone of voice is just right, it reads as though I'm having a conversation with a knowledgeable, trusted friend." "I noticed that it answered many of the questions I was always embarrassed to ask as I thought I should have already known those things." "I have wanted a book that covers the information provided in this book and have been unable to find one. I think this book will be an incredibly useful resource." Drawing on her 30 years' experience as a Registered Nurse and University Lecturer Practitioner, Carol Forde-Johnston has written an accessible and practical book that aims to respond to the questions and concerns that her students and NQNs frequently raise - and to help you thrive as a newly qualified nurse.

Ocean Innovation - Biomimetics Beneath the Waves (Hardcover, New): Iain A. Anderson, Julian Vincent, John Montgomery Ocean Innovation - Biomimetics Beneath the Waves (Hardcover, New)

R2,980 R2,825 Discovery Miles 28 250 Save R155 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Biomimetics is the idea of creating new technologies abstracted from what we find in biology. Ocean Innovation: Biomimetics Beneath the Waves seeks that technological inspiration from the rich biodiversity of marine organisms. Bringing both a biological and engineering perspective to the biomimetic potential of oceanic organisms, this richly illustrated book investigates questions such as: How can we mimic the sensory systems of sea creatures like sharks, sea turtles, and lobsters to improve our ability to navigate underwater? What can we do to afford humans the opportunity to go unnoticed by marine life? How can we diffuse oxygen from water to enable deep diving without the risk of decompression sickness? Each chapter explores an area where we, as divers and technologists, can benefit from understanding how animals survive in the sea, presenting case studies that demonstrate how natural solutions can be applied to mankind's engineering challenges.

Fast Facts for Health Promotion in Nursing - Promoting Wellness in a Nutshell (Paperback): Carol A. Miller Fast Facts for Health Promotion in Nursing - Promoting Wellness in a Nutshell (Paperback)
Carol A. Miller
R680 Discovery Miles 6 800 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"I would highly recommend this book to any nurse or nursing student for its practical usefulness in any practice arena. It is a desirable reference for nurses who want access to pertinent health education information and resources at their fingertips...Score: 97, 5 Stars.--Doody's Medical Reviews

This addition to the Fast Facts series provides a succinct guide for nurses in adult-health clinical settings and fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work, helping to improve patient outcomes, and throughout their daily lives, helping to reduce personal and professional stress and improve their overall wellness.

There currently is no clinical reference book that nurses can use for health promotion in general and health promotion for wellness in particular. Having such a reference is especially pertinent to nurses who learned about health promotion in academic nursing programs, but did not learn about health promotion in the broader context of promoting wellness.

Since Florence Nightingale, nurses have considered health promotion interventions - particularly patient education -- as an essential component of nursing care. Historically, these interventions traditionally focused on physical health concerns, such as nutrition, exercise, and fresh air, and more recently, on immunizations, and screening for disease (e.g., cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease). Because health promotion has expanded to include "wellness," nurses now address issues related to broader aspects, such as stress reduction, body-mind connectedness, and self-responsibility.

At the same time that wellness has become an important focus of care, health care providers increasingly are emphasizing cost effectiveness and use of advanced technology. As a result of these concurrent trends, nurses experience high levels of job-related stress and have less time to promote patient wellness as an integral part of their care, even though they recognize its importance. In addition, nurses increasingly recognize that job-related pressures negatively affect them personally and they are looking for ways to incorporate wellness in their work and personal experiences.

"Fast Facts for Health Promotion for Wellness (FF HP)" fills the need for an easy-to-use clinical reference that delivers a quick-access reference on ways to incorporate wellness into their work and throughout their daily lives.

This book: Helps nurses understand wellness in the context of health promotionClearly defines wellness as it applies to the practice of nursing Describes evidence-based techniques that nurses can readily incorporate into their usual care to promote wellness for their patientsProvides easy-to-use assessment tools for identifying wellness-related needs of patients Provides easy-easy-to-use tools for teaching patients about interventions to promote wellnessProvides evidence-based information about complementary and alternative practices that nurses often address in patient care situationsProvides information about reliable resources for patient teaching and additional information about topicsDiscusses ways in which nurses can achieve self wellness

The education system in South Africa is struggling to help learners to develop their full potential, particularly those from poor and rural communities. Research has shown that a lack of communication skills has become a major challenge and a barrier to learning for many learners. The current situation in this country requires us to consider not only children who have specific communication impairments, but also those battling to develop communication skills when their situation places them at a severe disadvantage. Speech-language therapy in a school context is a much-needed academic text for training students in speech-language therapy and audiology to work effectively in an educational environment. Speech-language therapy in a school context promotes collaborative practices among professionals, including occupational therapists, physiotherapists, learning support therapists and teachers, while reinforcing the ethical principles and practices required by the Health Professions Council of South Africa. It provides theory and practical guidelines in line with the Revised National Curriculum Statement and is supported by interactive learning activities. Chapters include the following: Speech-language therapy in a multicultural context; Inclusive education in South Africa; Communication as a critical resource for everyday living, learning and earning; Institutional language policies: the South African Schools Act; Multilingualism and primary language impairment; Ensuring culture-fair assessment and intervention; Integrated classroom-based speech-language services; Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems; Educational psychology in South Africa. Speech-language therapy in a school context is aimed at students in speech-language therapy and audiology and is also a valuable foundational text for practicing therapists.
