  • International Textbook of Reflective Practice in Nursing

    Reflective practice has been widely adopted as a successful method for developing nursing across many specialties. The International Textbook of Reflective Practice in Nursing provides a definitive synthesis of the current international literature and activity surrounding reflective practice within nursing. It provides a detailed meta-analysis of reflective practice, critical reflection and reflexive, addressing differences among them.

    The International Textbook of Reflective Practice in Nursing provides practical guidance on applying reflective practice to education, practice, and research in nursing, adopting the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International’s structure of knowledge, service, and learning. The knowledge section introduces the concept of reflection as a research and evaluative tool. The service section focuses on the ways reflection has been applied and implemented in clinical practice. The learning section examines evidence that contributes to the understanding of reflection as fundamental to the nursing curricula.

  • Nurse: A World of Care

    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.

  • Tales from the Pager Chronicles

    “I think courage isn't about looking like Grace Kelly as we walk into the lion‘s den.

  • 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.
