Description - International Council of Nurses by Madrean Schober
This book has been developed in recognition of the role played by nurses with advanced knowledge and skills in developing health care services worldwide, the evolution of new advanced practice nursing (APN) roles and innovative practice models, and the need for international guidelines. It explores international commonalities and differences in APN and addresses the key issues in practice, education, regulation, research and role/practice development, which are central to defining the distinctive nature of APN. Advanced practice nursing explores strategies for implementing APN in the context of the health care needs of each country, addresses legal and ethical challenges in advanced practice, and examines the implications, obstacles, barriers and facilitative strategies in maintaining, implementing and supporting the development of APN. This book is aimed at practitioners who are seeking to clarify the issues related to advanced practice as well as nurses looking to move into the APN role.
It provides guidance in decision-making, examines the implications for liaising with other health care professionals and encourages nurses to shape their role to the needs of their practice context.
