Nursing Models for Practice is an outstanding textbook with an international reputation, which has retained its popularity with students for more than a decade.
The third edition continues to offer an excellent introduction to the background theory and application of models in nursing practice. In a world where nurses are being asked to be more and more explicit about the contribution they make to health care, the evidence on which they base their practice, the actions they take, and the outcomes they are working towards with patients all have to be justified. The use of well developed theoretical models is therefore becoming even more important. Critically, they help not only to plan care but also to explain to others exactly what it is that they are aiming to achieve.
This new edition will be welcomed as a vital introduction to the world of models for students of nursing, whether at an introductory level or for those returning to study in order to update their knowledge.
