We are passionately interested in the importance of nursing values and believe that excellence in compassionate nursing care lies at the heart of nursing practice and that leadership is key to making this happen. Every nurse, whatever their position and role, has a vital leadership role to play in ensuring excellent care remains at the heart of nursing practice. From the preface Highly committed nurses often feel disillusioned, disempowered and angry when they are faced with negative media reports about poor standards of care. They are genuinely concerned, and want to address issues, when patients and clients feel they are not being cared for with compassion. However, complex and under-resourced healthcare environments pose many challenges. Developing ideas and initiatives from the highly successful Compassion and Caring in Nursing, in this new book Claire Chambers and Elaine Ryder focus on these potential difficulties and offers practitioners a chance to build on their current knowledge and experience, and consider ways to take the lead and act as catalysts for change. Each chapter focuses on a particular issue and case scenarios are used and revisited in each chapter, so that theory and practice are integrated throughout. Specific prompts encourage readers to bring about vital change in practice. All nurses, health visitors and health and social care practitioners should find this book motivating and realistic. It also offers thought-provoking inspiration for undergraduate and postgraduate healthcare students.

The pursuit of excellent compassionate care should be at the heart of all practice. However, it can be challenging for practitioners to deliver this day after day in a context of tight budgets and targets, which can erode the passion with which they entered their professions. Supporting Compassionate Healthcare Practice encourages healthcare professionals to look after themselves in order to maintain and develop their compassionate practice. This book considers how stress management, resilience, wellbeing and positivity can help all health professionals remain close to the values, attitudes and attributes that brought them into the caring professions. It presents and critiques the evidence base for these key concepts, bringing them to life with numerous case studies and examples, and develops a framework - RESPECT - for practice. This innovative volume is essential reading for all healthcare students, academics and professionals interested in improving both the quality of care and the wellbeing of patients and practitioners alike.

A milestone resource for palliative care nurses that facilitates evidence-based compassionate and humanistic care of the dying "A valuable contribution to the evolving field of palliative nursing care. It is authored by a model for this field, Bonnie Freeman, and brings to the bedside what her practice embodies--evidence-based clinically expert care...The CARES tool is a long-needed resource and we are all grateful to the author for moving her passion to paper. It will touch the lives and deaths of patients, families, and the nurses who care for them." --Betty Ferrell, PhD, RN, MA, FAAN, FCPN, CHPN Professor and Director, Division of Nursing Research and Education City of Hope National Medical Center From the Foreword This groundbreaking reference for palliative care nurses is the first to provide realistic and achievable evidence-based methods for incorporating compassionate and humanistic care of the dying into current standards of practice. It builds on the author's research-based CARES tool; a reference that synthesizes five key elements demonstrated to enable a peaceful death, as free from suffering as possible: comfort, airway management, management of restlessness and delirium, emotional and spiritual support, and selfcare for nurses. The book describes, step by step, how nurses can easily implement the basic tenets of the CARES tool into their end-of-life practice. It provides a clearly defined plan that can be individualized for each patient and tailored to specific family needs, and facilitates caring for the dying in the most respectful and humane way possible. The book identifies the most common symptom management needs in dying patients and describes, in detail, the five components of the CARES paradigm and how to implement them to enable a peaceful death and minimize suffering. It includes palliative care prompts founded on 29 evidence-based recommendations and the National Consensus Project for Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines. The resource also addresses the importance of the nurse to act as a patient advocate, how to achieve compassionate communication with the patient and family, and barriers and challenges to compassionate care. Case studies emphasize the importance of compassionate nursing care of the dying and how it can be effectively achieved. Key Features: Provides nurses with a clear understanding of the most common needs of the dying and supplies practical applications to facilitate and improve care Clarifies the current and often complex literature on care of the dying Includes case studies illustrating the most common needs of dying patients and how these are addressed effectively by the CARES tool Based on extensive evidence as well as on the National Consensus Project for Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines
