    In a moving tapestry of words and photographs, Nurse: A World of Care, documents and celebrates the vital and often invisible work of nurses throughout the globe. The many faces and voices of nurses are captured in compelling detail by photographer Karen Kasmauski and writer Peter Jaret. Together they paint an unforgettable and varied portrait of the profession, from the nurse midwives who walk long distances to deliver basic health care in the remote villages of Bangladesh, to the Alaska public health nurse who lives out of a sleeping bag to reach her patients, to the Thai hospice nurses who comfort and care for patients with AIDS.

    As this book powerfully argues, nursing is critical to delivering health care in every corner of the world. Only by recognizing and supporting the work of nurses can we hope to heal our ailing health care systems and ensure that nurses will continue to be there when we need them most.

  • Daily Miracles: Stories and Practices of Humanity and Excellence in Health Care

    How do caring and compassion show up in the demanding, often chaotic experience of health care practice? This book, in full-color and supported by magnificent photography, seeks to answer that question and put caring and compassion back at the center of excellent health care in spite of the time-pressured, cost-conscious, high-tech focus of modern health care.

    Authors Alan Briskin and Jan Boller met with 20 registered nurses for a sustained dialogue at a California community hospital to work toward an answer to this very question. Telling stories and discussing key principles of caring, the group engaged in conversations that revealed the inner landscape of both caring and caretaker. Using principles of appreciative inquiry, reflective practice, generative dialogue, and the power of speaking in circle, the work was an affirmation that when people are ill, they need a team to care for them. Likewise, caregivers need to be part of a group that cares together. Illustrated with original photography by one of the authors, the book has a beauty and spaciousness that is reflective of the book's message and perfect for anyone who wishes to experience relationship-centered care as a lived experience.
