Product Description

Edited by Mary Chiarella, Vicki Parker, Karen Patterson and Judith Lathlean

Published: 2010
ISBN: 978-1-921348-18-1
Pages: ii+126


In the current climate of staff shortage, scarce resources and increasing demand for service, nurses are continually challenged to review and revise practice to ensure best practice in the specific local context.

The NSW Models of Care Project identified numerous examples of how nurses have modelled creative adaptive innovation that has impacted significantly on patients and staff. Many of these initiatives remain unacknowledged and unavailable for adoption beyond their geographical and clinical contexts.

This special issue seeks to redress this shortfall by sharing and celebrating the work of the wider nursing community both internationally and across Australia; providing a forum for various perspectives about the issues, challenges and directions that impact on nurses and their ability to lead practice change from a ward or unit based, patient oriented perspective.

This issue is characterised by a strong problem solving approach to practice change or service re-design in a localised context with the aim of facilitating wider adoption of these initiatives. As such it is a valuable resource for nurses and midwives in all clinical specialities and across all health care contexts from nurse managers, educators and academics in partnership with clinicians.

In fact this special issue is vital reading for anyone who recognizes the value of understanding and implementing the innovative work of the nursing community in modeling impactful change in nursing care.
