Fundamentals of Nursing and Midwifery 2e is the seminal person-centred nursing text for Australian and New Zealand students. It is designed to introduce students to the why" as well as the how"by focusing not only on the patient"s physical healthcare needs, but also on the intellectual, emotional, sociocultural and spiritual aspects of care. In this way, students learn to be holistic carers while acquiring the foundational knowledge, procedures and skills required for registration and successful nursing practice. The second edition features progressive case studies, updated content on nursing informatics and IELTS (the International English Language Testing System), new coverage of mental health and mental illness, discussion on the ISBAR handover tool as a format for structured handover communication, and in-text references to the companion publication, Checklists for Clinical Nursing Skills, by Sparkes, Bassett and Jacob.
