As tobacco use continues as the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., the topic is a critical one for nursing science and for nursing scholarship. This book describes and synthesizes the current state of nursing research in tobacco control (prevention, treatment of tobacco dependence, and reducing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke). It identifies gaps in the literature and provides a foundation for future research in the area. The volume will be divided into four sections. This title includes such topics as: historical perspective of the emergence of nursing science and scientists in tobacco control, including a review of smoking among the nursing profession; diverse strategies used by nurse scientists in building the science; nursing involvement in the development of the Public Health Service Clinical Practice Guideline on Treating Tobacco Use and Dependence and nursing intervention research with a variety of populations; and, translation of evidence-based practice into patient populations, and strategies for development of future scholars.

This volume provides integral knowledge of all aspects of stroke care and rehabilitation after stroke, and is therefore highly relevant for nurses who work in rehabilitation centers. It outlines the several phases after stroke, for example the type of care patients may receive in the chronically phase at home. Nurses will obtain knowledge about treatment, importance of observation and caring with a special focus on communication problems, swallowing problems, activities of daily living, urinary and defecation problems, shoulder and hand issues. Thanks to photographs, nurses will learn to transfer patients in the adequate positions. Several chapters provide nurses with examples of effective and efficient collaboration with multidisciplinary professionals, informal caregivers and patients themselves. There is also an emphasis on behavior and cognitive functioning. And lastly, in the final chapters authors highlight the organization of rehabilitation and integrated care issues. Nurses play a very important role in rehabilitation, education, counseling, prevention, and caring for patients with cerebrovascular accident (CVA). In caring for stroke patients, nurses need specific competences and abilities that go beyond the general neurologic knowledge and experience. Nurses need to collaborate in an efficient and effective manner with multidisciplinary team members in their organization and across organizations. This book discusses medical aspects and specific symptoms of a stroke, as well as the limitations that patients experience, and which interventions are indicated for recovery.

Called to Care - A Christian Worldview for Nursing (Paperback, 2nd): Judith Allen Shelly, Arlene B. Miller Called to Care - A Christian Worldview for Nursing (Paperback, 2nd)
Judith Allen Shelly, Arlene B. Miller
R720 R541 Discovery Miles 5 410 Save R179 (25%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Nursing keeps changing. The role of the nurse grew out of a Christian understanding of the human person as created in the image of God, and viewed the body as a living unity and the "temple of the Holy Spirit" (1 Cor 6:19). Contemporary nursing, however, is increasingly characterized by a diminished understanding of personhood. The impact on patient care has proven confusing and discouraging to many nurses. In the newly revised and expanded Called to Care: A Christian Worldview for Nursing, Judith Allen Shelly and Arlene B. Miller define nursing for today based on a historically and theologically grounded understanding of the nurse's call: Nursing is a ministry of compassionate care for the whole person, in response to God's grace toward a sinful world, which aims to foster optimum health (shalom) and bring comfort in suffering and death for anyone in need. Called to Care asserts that nursing is a vocation, giving nurses a framework for understanding their mission and living out their calling: service to God through caring for others.
