Building on the revolutionary Institute of Medicine reports To Err is Human and Crossing the Quality Chasm, Keeping Patients Safe lays out guidelines for improving patient safety by changing nurses' working conditions and demands. Licensed nurses and unlicensed nursing assistants are critical participants in our national effort to protect patients from health care errors. The nature of the activities nurses typically perform - monitoring patients, educating home caretakers, performing treatments, and rescuing patients who are in crisis - provides an indispensable resource in detecting and remedying error-producing defects in the U.S. health care system. During the past two decades, substantial changes have been made in the organization and delivery of health care - and consequently in the job description and work environment of nurses. As patients are increasingly cared for as outpatients, nurses in hospitals and nursing homes deal with greater severity of illness. Problems in management practices, employee deployment, work and workspace design, and the basic safety culture of health care organizations place patients at further risk. This newest edition in the groundbreaking Institute of Medicine Quality Chasm series discusses the key aspects of the work environment for nurses and reviews the potential improvements in working conditions that are likely to have an impact on patient safety.

The book will give a critical overview of the current research literature regarding the topic of clinical decision making and judgement in nursing. This is in contrast to other texts which either rely on anecdotal evidence to justify their approach, or focus on medical (rather than nurse) decision making. The text aims to help individuals apply different techniques to practice, aiming for a 'non-academic' style which will be easy for readers to understand. Both the editors are researchers in the field of nurse decision making and have considerable experience teaching the subject on third level diploma/degree, masters level and post-registration nursing courses. This text is therefore unique in drawing together both the research (current as well as that which has already been published) and practical experience of implementing techniques in practice.

Care of the Person with Dementia responds to the urgent need for health practitioners to take an innovative approach to the challenge of dementia. The first Australian text of its kind, it combines evidence-based resources with interprofessional education and practice, exploring the ethical, social and environmental repercussions of dementia to provide a comprehensive overview of dementia care in an Australian context. The text is structured around a model of interprofessional education and practice (IPE) tailored to dementia care. This model incorporates the context of care, an important element missing from other recognised models of IPE. Throughout the book, principles of IPE are explained within the context of dementia, drawing on exemplars from a body of current, well-researched and evaluated dementia practice. Written by experienced academics, and providing national and international perspectives, this is a unique and crucial resource to develop collaborative skills and professional knowledge in the management of dementia.

Life would be much simpler for GPs if patients presented with diagnoses. Unfortunately, patients instead present with symptoms that are frequently vague, sometimes multiple and often obscure. Most clinical texts adopt a diagnosis rather than a symptom based approach. Across its four editions, Symptom Sorter has redressed this balance, becoming an essential reference book in primary care. Covering over 100 of the symptoms most commonly found in primary care, this latest, fully updated edition features new entries including failure to thrive and febrile children, anxiety, hip and knee pain, and mouth lumps and marks, all explored through the 'red flags', 'top tips' and 'ready reckoner' format for sorting symptoms that has made previous editions so popular and respected. All general practitioners, especially GP trainers, GP registrars, young principals, nurse practitioners and A&E nurses will find this book an invaluable reference. From reviews of previous editions: 'Essential for all GPs, trainers and registrars. Great value and a superb practical book. Five stars!' DOCTOR 'This is the one book I would like to take into the consulting room.' LONDON CALLING 'If you have this book in your room, and you consult it every day, my guess is that you will do at least one thing better every day, and, maybe many more.
