The Nursing Process: a global concept critically explores a concept that was introduced into nursing in the 1970s and rapidly spread all over the world. It has become part of the education of most nurses the world over, but its implementation has been met with mixed success. This book offers a critical evaluation of why and how it is used.
It begins with the background and history of the Nursing Process, and analyses its use in various fields, such as managerial technologies and psychiatric nursing. It then goes on to look at its use in six different countries from a variety of world regions - in Europe, Finland, Germany and the Czech Republic, as well as South Africa, Australia and the Caribbean. It explores its strengths and weaknesses, and tries to make some predictions about future use.
The book combines descriptions of the state-of-the-art based on extensive literature surveys, as well as analytical approaches. It creates opportunities for comparison, especially with regard to problem-solving strategies.
