Because nursing practice is ever-changing, the text will be heavily revised to represent the latest literature and references on topics. New or updated content has been added throughout the book to reflect cutting-edge trends in health care and nursing education. A new chapter on Health Care Reform in a New Administration will be included in the 5th Edition, which will cover the changes in healthcare delivery and health finance that emerge with the new Trump administration. A chapter that addresses the ethical issues associated with emerging technologies in health care will be added to this edition. Our chapter on Workplace Violence will be broadened to discuss Healthy Workplace Environments and Civility.
This edition will feature a NEW! full color design with additional photographs and drawings to reinforce learning for visual learners or students who digest information more easily when it is accompanied by visual aids. Further, instructors will receive an ENHANCED! test bank to assess students’ knowledge of the material.
Each chapter will begin with Learning Objectives and an overview of the professional issue being discussed. Multiple perspectives on each issue are then identified in an effort to reflect the diversity of thought found in the literature as well as espoused by experts in the field and varied professional nursing and health care organizations. Discussion Points encourage readers to pause and reflect on specific questions. These questions can be completed by students independently or used as group work in class. The “Consider This” features also encourage active learning, critical thinking, and values clarification by the users. In addition, at least one research study is profiled in every chapter in “Research Study Fuels the Controversy,” an effort to promote evidence-based analysis of the issue. Each chapter concludes with Conclusions about the issues discussed, questions for additional discussion, and a comprehensive and current reference list. Each chapter also includes multiple displays, boxes, and tables to allow for a good reading experience and to help the user visualize important concepts.
