The Global strategic directions for nursing and midwifery (SDNM) 2021-2025 presents evidence-based practices and an interrelated set of policy priorities that can help countries to ensure that midwives and nurses optimally contribute to achieving universal health coverage (UHC) and other population health goals. The primary targets of the SDNM are health workforce planners and policy makers, as well as educational institutions, public and private sector employers, professional associations, labour unions, bilateral and multilateral development partners, international organizations, and civil society. The intended impact of the SDNM is that countries fully enable the contributions of midwives and nurses towards the following common goals: primary health care for UHC and managing the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic; mitigating the health effects of climate change; managing international migration; and ensuring access in rural and remote areas and small island developing states.
In Turning the World Upside Down Nigel Crisp argued that the most affluent and powerful countries in the world can learn a great deal about health from lower income countries with their different insights and experiences and their ability to innovate free from vested interests and received wisdom. In Turning the World Upside Down Again, he argues that they need to go further and listen to and learn from disempowered communities in their own countries. He describes how combining the learning from different countries and communities can lead us to a new ecologically based vision for health and new and practical ways of improving health for ourselves, our communities and our planet. This second edition, 12 years after the first, is extensively re-written and fully updated, drawing on examples from around the world and reflecting what has already been learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and from the onset of climate change. Turning the World Upside Down Again continues the search for understanding begun in the first edition and describes how western scientific medicine, which has served us so well in the 20th Century, must adapt and evolve further and faster to cope with the demands of the 21st Century.
The world is constantly changing, and during a time of great challenges, our healthcare systems must evolve—moving beyond an illness narrative and toward one that focuses on health and healing. In doing so, our leadership styles must evolve as well. Visionary Leadership in Healthcare informs, expands, and empowers nurse leaders to envision and transform the current healthcare system using an evolved worldview to achieve a global, life-sustaining perspective. Authors and skilled, experienced nurse leaders Holly Wei and Sara Horton-Deutsch model their call to move away from hierarchical leadership to more engaged, open, equitable, inclusive, authentic, and caring leadership styles.

Build a solid foundation in the knowledge and skills you need to succeed as a nurse! Designed specifically for today’s students, Fundamentals of Nursing, 3rd Edition takes a fresh, conversational approach that is friendlier than typical books on nursing fundamentals. To make understanding easier, the book introduces basic information first and then follows with progressively more nuanced and complex nursing concepts. Practical exercises provide a unique kind of active learning, allowing you to apply concepts to actual patient care. Even care planning is different, as authors Barbara L. Yoost and Lynne R. Crawford are pioneers of conceptual care mapping — a visual, holistic way of making clinical judgments and planning patient care. Essentially, this text offers an easier, fundamentally different way to learn the nursing profession! UNIQUE! Building-block approach uses review questions and exam questions tied to learning objectives, starting at lower Bloom's taxonomy levels in the early chapters and building to more complex levels as you acquire more knowledge. UNIQUE! Warm, friendly writing style introduces concepts and terms more slowly, giving you time to practice, think critically, and gain mastery. Case studies open each chapter with real-world scenarios, helping you build analytical, critical thinking, and clinical judgment skills. Coverage of complementary therapies is integrated throughout the text, reflecting changes to the NCLEX® exam. Emphasis on assignment and delegation describes the differences between the two skills, and how and when they are appropriate for an RN. UNIQUE! Objective-driven approach presents clearly defined, numbered learning objectives that coordinate with all content and then wrap up with Objective Summaries. UNIQUE! Active learning activities help you apply chapter content to broader nursing concepts and realistic patient scenarios. UNIQUE! Conceptual care mapping is used throughout the text in conjunction with the Conceptual Care Map creator to help you develop clinical judgment and plans of care. Boxed features cover the areas of interprofessional collaboration and delegation, ethical and legal practice, patient education and healthy literacy, health assessment questions, diversity considerations, evidence-based practice and informatics, home care considerations, QSEN, and safe practice alerts. NEW! Clinical Judgment in Nursing chapter introduces the concept of clinical judgment and the six NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model Skills. NEW! Clinical judgment steps are integrated within the nursing process.
Nurses make up 53% of health-care professionals in the World Health Organization (WHO) South-East Asian Region. They have a vital role to play in organizing and applying health actions, both at the front line and managerial levels (1). Knowledgeable, engaging and skilled nurse educators who can teach with compassion, plan, organize, implement and evaluate appropriate education programmes are prerequisites for quality nursing training (2). The Global strategy on human resources for health: workforce 2030 (3), the Global strategic directions for nursing and midwifery 2021-2025 (4), and SEARO's initiative on the Decade of health workforce strengthening 2015-2024 in the South-East (SE) Asia Region (5) all include strengthening education as a policy priority to progress toward universal health coverage.
