Patient Safety and Managing Risk in Nursing, Hardback Book

Patient Safety and Managing Risk in Nursing Hardback

Part of the Transforming Nursing Practice Series series

Description

Patient safety is a predominant feature of quality healthcare and something that every patient has the right to expect. As a nurse, you must consider the safety of the patient as paramount in every aspect of your role; and it is now an increasingly important topic in pre-registration nursing programmes.

This book aims to provide you with a greater understanding of how to manage patient safety and risk in your practice.

The book focuses on the essentials that you need to know, and therefore provides a clear pathway through what can sometimes seem an overwhelmingly complex mass of rules, procedures and possible options. Key features:* A practical introduction to patient safety and risk management written specifically for nurses and nursing students* Case studies and scenarios help you to apply patient safety and risk management principles to actual practice* Each chapter is mapped to the relevant NMC standards and Essential Skills Clusters so that you can see how you are meeting the professional requirements* Activities throughout help you to think critically and reflect on practice.
