About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first practical guide for nurses on how to incorporate the kwledge, skills, and tools of Strength-Based Nursing Care (SBC) into everyday practice. The text, based on a model developed by the prestigious McGill University Nursing Program, signifies a paradigm shift in nursing care from a model based on problems, deficits, and pathology to one that focuses on individual, family, and community strengths as a cornerstone of effective nursing care. The testimony of 46 nurses demonstrates how SBC can be effectively used in multiple settings across the lifespan. The book develops the theoretical foundations underlying SBC, promotes the acquisition of fundamental skills needed for SBC practice, and offers specific strategies, techniques, and tools for identifying strengths and harnessing them to facilitate healing and health. According to the SBC model, the text describes how one becomes a nurse through retraining the senses, developing observation skills, and reforming interpersonal and communication skills for clinical judgement and decision-making. The text includes an instructor's guide. Author Laurie Gottlieb has been the recipient of the prestigious Centennial Award of the Canadian Nurses Association, the only award to recognise the 100 most influential nurses in Canada. Key Features: Provides the first complete, foundational, and practical textbook on Strength-Based Nursing Care Teaches how to identify, engage, and nurture existing and new strengths to enhance health and healing Integrates testimony and clinical insights from 46 nurses using SBC in clinical practice Emphasises clinical and critical inquiry, clinical grasp and judgement, decision-making, and evidence-based practice
