Reflective Organizations: On the Front Lines of QSEN & Reflective Practice Implementation
By Gwen Sherwood and Sara Horton-Deutsch
Today’s health care environment is ever-evolving. This constant progression requires educators and practitioners to be nimble, flexible, and responsive to change. While individuals can be nimble and flexible, organizational culture is often stubbornly resistant. This book focuses on reflective learning as a catalyst for transforming traditional organizations and environments. The authors make a strong case that the way organizations incorporate change into their culture or processes ultimately affects sustainability.
This highly anticipated fully revised and expanded second edition of The Nurse’s Etiquette Advantage will prepare you to handle awkward and challenging situations, increase your confidence, enhance your reputation, and focus your career aspirations. Using a conversational Q&A format, the author has filled this book with practical tips, faux pas, and dos and don’ts to give you tools to become a polished, confident professional.
Nurses are on the front lines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Also, too few nurse faculty have personal real-world experience in responding to natural and man-made disasters. The authors help ensure that nursing students are prepared to respond to disasters by giving nurse educators strategies and solutions for incorporating disaster preparedness into their curricula.
