Power and Conflict Between Doctors and Nurses by Maureen A. Coombs
Book DescriptionThrough observations in three intensive care units, this book draws on the reality of practice to explore how nurses and doctors work in intensive care settings. It examines: * the power held by the competing knowledge bases * the roles of the different professions * the decision-making process * the sources of conflict * the need for change. Drawing together sociological theories and clinical practice, Power and Conflict Between Doctors and Nurses explores the role of nurses in delivering contemporary health care. It makes a strong case for interdisciplinary working and is particularly timely when health care policy is challenging work boundaries in health care.
