AJN Book of the Year 2008
As health care becomes more technically and scientifically focused, it becomes increasingly important that the patient does not become de-humanized in the process. And, increasingly, nurses are the key to ensuring medicine remains human centered.
This groundbreaking new book demonstrates that human-centered care, a basic tenet of the philosophical basis of nursing practice, is the foundation of quality nursing care. In today’s high-tech world of medicine, interpersonal relationships must be integrated with technological and scientific advances, placing equal importance on both communication and technical skills.
The author, an internationally recognized expert in this field, explores the human interaction between nurses and patients. She offers a detailed method for studying the nature of nursing and a way for individual nurses to value their own nursing experiences and create possibilities for excellence in nursing care.
