Description
Nurses play a key role in the rehabilitation process--maximizing the quality of life and independence of individuals following trauma, disease or enduring chronic illness. Advancing Practice in Rehabilitation Nursing provides an in-depth analysis of specialist practice in rehabilitation nursing. It examines the research basis underlying clinical practice and identifies unique attributes of the nursing role within the context of multidisciplinary and multi-agency working.
The first part of Advancing Practice in Rehabilitation Nursing explores general principles of specialist rehabilitation practice, which can be applied to both community and in-patient settings. The second part addresses specific issues in core areas of practice including stroke, acquired brain injury, spinal injury, orthopaedic rehabilitation and management of people with long-term conditions.
