Understanding Person-Centred Care for Nursing Associates
Nursing | Nursing Theory & Professional Issues
Understanding how to deliver effective, person-centred care is vital for a future career as a Nursing Associate. In this book, trainee nursing associates are introduced to the principles of person-centred care, with case studies from a variety of healthcare settings and guidance on caring for different patient groups, from acute care to long-term and palliative care. This allows TNAs to see how the theory can be directly applied to their daily practice, regardless of where they work. The book also covers key issues in relation to providing care, such as inclusivity, ethics, legal issues, and health inequalities.
- Fully mapped to the new NMC standards of proficiency for nursing associates (2018)
- Case studies, activities and other learning features help TNAs understand the theory and apply it to practice
- Designed around a Nursing Associate course, this book demonstrates how person-centred care feeds into each core module
ABOUT THE SERIES: The Understanding Nursing Associate Practice series (UNAP) is a new collection of books uniquely designed to support trainee Nursing Associates throughout their training and into a professional career.
I am thrilled to see this text written specifically for Nursing Associates. Aligning to the NMC Standards of Proficiency and with reference to a wide variety of patient/client considerations across the lifespan, this is an invaluable read for any Nursing Associate student embarking on their educational journey.
Clear language that students will understand.
Linked well to NMC standards and gives context with case studies
Students from a range of backgrounds can relate to this text and the practical scenarios within
Good basic information, however use of Mind Tools as a reference source has undermined adoption; we discourage apprentices from using on-line sources that may not be academically robust.
Liked the mapping to the NMC standards for Nursing Associate but would have been enhanced by also mapping the apprenticeship standard (Ofsted requires integration into curriculum)..
