About this book

Introduction

A comprehensive and applied text which explores those aspects of psychology which directly inform nursing care. The focus is always on practical nursing interventions, and the authors emphasize the importance of research-based practice and the need to understand and evaluate existing practice throughout. Case studies from hospital and community nursing are used to expand theoretical points and encourage direct application. Self assessment questions conclude each chapter to aid learning.
