by Harriet FormanToo often, both nurses and patients witness major breakdowns in the health care system - ineffective communication, unrealistic nurse-patient ratios, tension among staff, abuse of authority, and most importantly, managers drawn away from patients due to administrative duties. This inspiring guide presents engaging, real-life stories of nurses, managers, and leaders who have experienced failures of the health care system firsthand, and have been motivated to critically examine, address, and resolve them.Using a collection of narratives, the book provides practical methods, models, and strategies that nurses can apply to enhance and expand their own practices. Readers will gain a wealth of insight on how to overcome narrow-mindedness and egocentrism, improve their management, leadership, communication, and organizational skills, and ultimately be able to bring real reform to health care practices and patient care.Key features:
  • Presents stories of actual management issues and how nurse leaders/managers, nursing staff, and patients have handled them
  • Identifies harmful trends in the health care system that can be analyzed and remedied
  • Encourages nurse managers to shift the prevailing "system-centered" orientation to one that is "patient-centered"
  • Provides a phenomenologically based leadership/management model for resolving nursing issues institutionally and individually
  • Includes methods for addressing cultural and religious barriers among staff
