  • Features
    • NEW! “Technology Alert” – highlights changes in technology or new technology on the horizon. This feature shows students what new technology is in development and will be likely to be in place by the time they are practicing. Students should expect to see new things all the time. This makes them aware of the tools they are using now may not be the ones they use two, five or ten years down the road in their career. By understanding as students that technology is always changing they will be better prepared to embrace change later.
    • NEW! Reflective Practice Leading to Personal Learning – will be added to the clinical chapters. This feature is designed to assist students in fully understanding their clinical experience by asking them to reflect on that experience. It will include a short introductory paragraph with pertinent bulleted points. The new feature will be placed at the end of the chapter content after the “Evaluating” section of the Nursing Process section, before the “Nursing Plan of Care.” The purpose of this feature is to focus students on the person-centered care approach by encouraging them to look beyond the condition to the person with the condition.
    • NEW! Chapter on Informatics . In the course of their daily work, Nurses are immersion users of technology, collectors of crucial data and firsthand observers of health IT’s effect on patients. They provide much of the information necessary to improve patient care, show regulatory compliance and propel research. In the eight edition, Nursing Informatics was covered within the Communications chapter as sidebars. Nursing Informatics becomes an increasingly important part of patient care. According to the 2015 HIMSS Impact of the Informatics Nurse Survey, 60% of respondents indicated that informatics have a high degree of impact on the quality of care that patients receive.
    • NEW! QSEN boxes – a new in-text box to highlight content related to QSEN competencies, when applicable. The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) was developed to identify the competencies pre-licensure and graduate students need for safe. QSEN defines safety as minimize(ing) risk of harm to patients and providers through both system effectiveness and individual performance. QSEN competencies are key to ensuring students understand how to keep patients safe

Students can document the cases throughout the book using DocuCare if adopted.
    • Learning Objectives : These roadmaps help students understand what is important and why. They can be used to create a learning outline or for self-testing.
    • Reflective Practice Boxes : Readers discover how other nursing students confront challenging situations (cognitive, technical, interpersonal, or ethical/legal) then reflect on the action they would take.
    • Focused Critical Thinking Guides : Students learn how careful thinking can change patient outcomes. Like nursing care, careful thinking and reflective practice follow a process. The boxes help students gain skill in the step-by-step critical thinking process.
