Written from a multi-professional perspective the book appeals to anyone with an interest in hospice and palliative care in Ireland.

EBOOK Principles And Practice Of Managing Pain A Guide For Nurses And Allied Health Professionals Excerpt :

Pain management is a popular topic for nursing students and one that is covered primarily during years 2 and 3 of pre-registration nursing courses. Caring for patients involves understanding and knowing how to manage and treat their conditions and illnesses, and the pain associated with them. An understanding of the mechanics of pain, how pain affects individuals and how pain can be treated is absolutely core to nursing study and practice and nurses need to be able to identify, assess and treat pain responsibly and as part of their broader care for patients.Pain is also a complex subject which needs to be skillfully taught and integrated with other topics. The authors deliver a distance learning Pain course, from which the book is being developed, and as such the book will include lots of learning tools and features to help explore concepts, self-develop and acquire critical thinking skills - all essential throughout the nursing course. The emphasis of the book will not be on facts, physiology or pharmacology, but instead the book will draw on these things to help students develop a solid philosophy of care that encompasses good pain management. The book will also cover the patient perspective in depth and will have a problem-solving ethos that explores pain as a core aspect of care giving.

EBOOK User Participation in Health and Social Care Research Excerpt :

This is a timely book, given the increasing emphasis on user participation in both research and health and social service provision, that can be read in conjunction with a more general book on research..." David Hicks, Liverpool John Moores University, UK User participation in research is still in its relative infancy with many practical, ethical, moral, methodological and philosophical questions unanswered. This text gathers together an international set of authors to explore these issues and begin to forge some practical solutions to each of these concerns. The book includes contributions on the use and application of narrative approaches, intervention and evaluation research, methodological development and quality thresholds. It provides a practical framework for all groups wishing to undertake research based on the principles and values of user participation. The book is structured around ten original case studies which explore the use of participatory methods in practice with a variety of groups across diverse health, social care and community settings. These include older people, including those with dementia, people with learning disability, mental health service users and their carers, and children and young people. Unique and often groundbreaking studies from Australia, Sweden, the UK, and the USA are used to illustrate application of theory to research practice. In addition the text: Considers the issues, challenges and rewards of user participation research Draws on the actual experience of doing research and working with users Includes the voices and contributions of users in reporting research User Participation in Health and Social Care Research: Voices, Values and Evaluation is key reading for students, researchers, practitioners and users themselves wishing to undertake participative research involving service users.

EBOOK Psychology for Nurses and the Caring Professions Excerpt :

"This beautifully written book ... clearly explains the application of psychological concepts and theories to health and succinctly summarises key issues. Each chapter also provides a series of vignettes capturing the kind of real-life situations health and social care professionals will encounter in their own practice and a set of thought-provoking exercises ... These will be invaluable in developing critical thinking skills and growing the capacity to provide the kind of empathic care which is the heart of person-centred practice" Dr Wendy Cousins, Course Director, University of Ulster School of Nursing, UK "I have recommended earlier editions of this book and now am delighted to say that this latest edition is even better. The authors continue to clearly explain the relevance of psychological theories, models and approaches to nursing care but now, through the use of frequent reflective activities, vignettes and a 'psychosoap' family, students are also highly encouraged to identify how the theory will help them to become the high quality holistic practitioners they desire to be." Anthony Duffy, Nurse Tutor, College of Human and Health Sciences, Swansea University, UK "This new edition embraces innovation in student learning. The use of the 'psychosoap' provides a structure which is meaningful and insightful. The chapter exercises have ‘realworld’ application and can be used to understand your own and others motivations, beliefs and values. Unlike many psychology texts ... this book offers real 'food for thought' and provides the building blocks which link theory to practice. It will also be a valuable resource for those who like to 'dip in' to a book." Philip Larkin, Professor of Clinical Nursing (Palliative Care), and Joint Chair, University College Dublin and Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services, Ireland "This new edition continues to improve the reader's experience, providing comprehensive insight into the complex subject of psychology.
