A clear, accessible and evidence-based introduction to effective decision-making in nursing. It discusses the processes and frameworks that support clinical reasoning and applies theory and knowledge to the nursing context.
Activities and case studies provide regular opportunities to apply theory to practice with real-world examples of decision making in action encourage students to reflect on and draw from their own lived experiences.
The book has been carefully developed to support students in meeting the NMC Future Nurse Standards of Proficiency and draws from many of the lessons learned during the Covid-19 pandemic, making it a rich learning resource for all student and qualified nurses.
This book is a valuable resource as I embark upon qualification to the professional nursing register. ‘Understanding Decision-Making in Nursing Practice’ provides an in-depth, nuanced view of the evidence-based processes required for clinical reasoning and how to make sound judgments in nursing practice. The ‘activity’ sections throughout the book provides the reader with further literature and resources providing an outlet for further critical thinking and independent learning.
