A new era of opportunity is emerging for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) to increasingly address gaps in access to quality healthcare. APRNs must be prepared to practice to the full scope of their education and abilities. As more and more states pass legislation enhancing prescriptive authority and fully autonomous practice for APRNs, a comprehensive resource on prescribing practices is needed.

The increasing demands of today's fast-paced healthcare environment require a new level of prescriber expertise. Knowledge about medication characteristics and effectiveness must be accompanied by an understanding of the context and process of prescribing. "The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber" provides practicing APRNs and students with the information necessary to make fully informed, rational and ethical decisions as prescribers.

This book opens with an overview of the role of the APRN prescriber and moves on to discussing practical issues such as managing difficult patient situations, special considerations when prescribing controlled substances, the influence of pharmaceutical marketing, state regulation, and legal aspects of prescribing. The book also examines barriers to prescribing, and the concluding chapter underscores key information to build cultural competence when prescribing.

An evidence-based resource for all APRNs and APRN students, "The Advanced Practice Registered Nurse as a Prescriber "provides a comprehensive and practical resource essential for APRNs in all advanced practice roles.

The perioperative management of newborns with surgical conditions is an interdisciplinary effort. These infants generally spend less than a day in the operating room, but require days, weeks, or even months of complex pre- and postoperative care that spans several medical and surgical areas of expertise. Multidisciplinary collaboration as a team is rarely covered in textbooks with a strictly medical or surgical focus. This tends to be working knowledge that is gained by experience. The Manual of Neonatal Surgical Intensive Care will therefore be useful to both medical and surgical clinicians who are taking care of newborn infants with surgical conditions. This work is a collaborative effort between the surgical staff at Children's Hospital and the medical staff at Boston Children's Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and hospitals further afield. Its intended audience is surgeons, neonatologists, pediatricians, neonatal nurse practitioners, neonatal nurses, transport clinicians, and any other healthcare providers expected to render pre- or postoperative care or counseling for these newborns. Children's Hospital receives infants who require surgery and complex postoperative surgical care from local newborn nurseries, our associated Special Care Nurseries, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, and Brigham and Women's Hospital, as well as from other referring hospitals across the country and around the world. The contributing authors reflect this web of community and tertiary hospitals. In this third edition, we have added several new chapters and have updated all existing chapters, adding illustrations to clarify the written descriptions.

R985 Discovery Miles 9 850 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

We are passionately interested in the importance of nursing values and believe that excellence in compassionate nursing care lies at the heart of nursing practice and that leadership is key to making this happen. Every nurse, whatever their position and role, has a vital leadership role to play in ensuring excellent care remains at the heart of nursing practice. From the preface Highly committed nurses often feel disillusioned, disempowered and angry when they are faced with negative media reports about poor standards of care. They are genuinely concerned, and want to address issues, when patients and clients feel they are not being cared for with compassion. However, complex and under-resourced healthcare environments pose many challenges. Developing ideas and initiatives from the highly successful Compassion and Caring in Nursing, in this new book Claire Chambers and Elaine Ryder focus on these potential difficulties and offers practitioners a chance to build on their current knowledge and experience, and consider ways to take the lead and act as catalysts for change. Each chapter focuses on a particular issue and case scenarios are used and revisited in each chapter, so that theory and practice are integrated throughout. Specific prompts encourage readers to bring about vital change in practice. All nurses, health visitors and health and social care practitioners should find this book motivating and realistic. It also offers thought-provoking inspiration for undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare students.
