about this item

Drawing on the universal values in health care, the second edition of Quality and Safety in Nursing continues to devote itself to the nursing community and explores their role in improving quality of care and patient safety.

Edited by key members of the Quality and Safety Education for Nursing (QSEN) steering team, Quality and Safety in Nursing is divided into three sections. It first looks at the national initiative for quality and safety and links it to its origins in the IOM report. The second section defines each of the six QSEN competencies as well as providing teaching and clinical application strategies, resources, and current references. The final section now features redesigned chapters on implementing quality and safety across settings.

New additions to this edition include:

Instructional and practice approaches including narrative pedagogy and integrating the competencies in simulation

A new chapter exploring the application of clinical learning and the critical nature of inter-professional teamwork

A revised chapter on the mirror of education and practice to better understand teaching approaches
