Main Description
Philosophical and Theoretical Perspectives for Advanced Nursing Practice, Fifth Edition continues as an essential source for articles addressing both philosophical and theoretical topics with an emphasis on evidence-based practice, values, person-centered care, and global perspectives. Similar to the previous edition, the Fifth Edition features a more selective and contemporary range of views and articles. In addition to comprehensive section openers, the selected articles enable students not only to understand nursing theories but also apply them effectively in nursing practice. Philosophical and Theoretical Perspectives for Advanced Nursing Practice, Fifth Edition contains expanded introductory sections, new material on evidence-based practice addressing patient autonomy and control of care, and discussion questions at the end of each chapter.
