Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Boca Raton CRC Press 2011Description: xxiii, 267 p. Includes index.ISBN: 9781846193903.Subject(s): Medical ethics | Nurse and patient | Nursing ethicsDDC classification: 610.730699 Summary: Dignity in the care of patients and clients of all ages, whether in hospital or community settings, is an area of increasing national and international importance and concern. However, a comprehensive, accessible resource for nurses and midwives on the theory and practice of dignity in care has until now been lacking. Dignity in Healthcare provides a practical approach, underpinned by up-to-date theory, to this crucial issue for those providing care to people in all stages of life, including those with mental illnesses or learning disabilities. Care in areas such as maternity, community, palliative and acute care and others is explored in depth. Approaches to education and practice development for promoting dignity in care are also outlined clearly and accessibly, with each chapter combining an evidence-based theoretical underpinning with practical application through scenarios. Pre-registration nursing and midwifery students and their teachers will find this book essential reading, but it will also be of interest to practising nurses, midwives and other health professionals seeking clear insights into the principle of care that is central to all healthcare professions. https://www.crcpress.com/Dignity-in-Healthcare-A-Practical-Approach-for-Nurses-and-Midwives/Matiti-Bailey/p/book/9781846193903
