Nov 282019
 

This text examines the concepts which are fundamental to everyday nursing practice. Understanding how individuals function psychologically in health and illness is vital to providing appropriate care for all patients and clients. Assuming no previous knowledge of the subject, the author explores the basis of individual psychology focusing on personality traits, beliefs systems, body-image and self-esteem. Periods of illness are seen as psychologically demanding events which individuals cope with in different ways. The book considers how we recognize and interpret the signs and symptoms of illness in ourselves, what influences the decision to seek help and whether or not we comply with advice from health professionals. The contribution of psychological factors to physical wellbeing is also examined and the link between psychological theory and patient care is examined throughout the book. With scenarios and questions to help the reader apply the concepts to nursing practice Essential Psychology for Nurses provides an excellent introduction to the subject for pre-registration students and those studying psychological concepts in relation to health care.

Frontier Nursing in Appalachia: History, Organization and the Changing Culture of Care

 Nursing  Comments Off on Frontier Nursing in Appalachia: History, Organization and the Changing Culture of Care
Nov 202019
 

This book provides a historical analysis of the Frontier Nursing Services in the Eastern Appalachians of the United States, as well as a review of the oral history tradition of former frontier and non-frontier nurses. The data was gathered from 2003 to 2007, and the historical part covers the years 1900 to 1970.
The objective of the study presented here was to conduct interviews with former frontier and non-frontier nurses in order to better understand their family and personal relationships, and the experiences that motivated their career choices. These interviews also give a voice to the working and middle-class women of the FNS. The emerging themes include moral inhabitability in work/education environments, the generational mix, nurse-physician and male-female relationships at the workplace, the role of technology, humanitarian versus financial rewards, and the public image of nurses.

In addition, the book examines how the FNS shifted from a community/grass-roots structure to the corporate/business model of healthcare delivery employed today. In closing, it stresses the importance of explorig past nursing in order to better grasp present nursing. It also represents a testament to the professional work and vital contributions of frontier nurses.
