Nursing Perspectives on Quality of Life by Peter Draper
Book DescriptionOne of the fundamental aims of nursing is to safeguard or promote patients' 'quality of life'. In Nursing Perspectives on Quality of Life, Peter Draper examines existing ways of defining the concept and argues that nurses need to adopt a fresh approach, which more accurately reflects patients' concerns and helps them to develop practical ways of promoting the well-being of people in their care. The text provides an analysis of statistical approaches to quality of life, including social indicators, the Quality Adjusted Life Year (QALY), and the medical outcomes literature. The author proposes an alternative, qualitative approach to organising care, which respects the patients' choice and individuality and presents the findings of new research into the quality of life of older people in hospital wards. Combining original research and a critical analysis of existing models, Nursing Perspectives on Quality of Life is suitable for students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
