Dedicated time spent with patients and families in clinical settings is often limited, rushed, and impersonal. How can nurses develop more positive, caring relationships with their patients, and help to improve the quality of patient care at large?
This book addresses this critical question by presenting Joanne R. Duffy's Quality-Caring Model -the result of 35 years of clinical experience and educational acumen. This values-based model will bring caring back into the foreground of nursing practice by providing revised curricula for educational programs, and outlining the core caring principles for nurse administrators.
Written in clear, accessible language, this book will be an invaluable resource to nursing students, nursing scholars, clinical nurses, nurse educators, nurse researchers, and nurse leaders. Duffy's approach will help create a redesigned patient care delivery system focused on the primacy of caring relationships.
