A trusted person-centred resource to start you on the path to professional success
Fundamentals of Nursing and Midwifery is a popular foundational nursing text specifically for Australian and New Zealand students. This comprehensive resource provides a detailed overview of key information with person-centred care highlighted throughout to provide a focus on the individualistic, interactive and holistic nature of nursing and midwifery care. It is designed to introduce students to the ‘why’ as well as the ‘how’ of nursing by focusing not only on a person’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.
This thoroughly revised and updated third edition features progressive case studies, updated content on nursing informatics and the IELTS (the International English Language Testing System), expanded coverage of mental health and mental illness, discussion on the ISBAR 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.
