Overview

The Clinical Decision Making series is the most ambitious attempt to bridge the gap between content knowledge and clinical application. Clinical Decision Making: Case Studies in Pediatrics recognizes that numerous considerations, or variables, factor into making nursing decisions. This book contains 40 pediatric case histories and questions, based on real life client situations, which make learning easier and more memorable than a textbook discussion or lecture based on textbook content. Every case contains an introductory "blueprint" of variables that must be considered while evaluating that particular scenario, which are pertinent concerning the client, nursing protocol, and setting of care. Examples of these variables include the client's age, gender, or culture, the client with a pre-existing condition, legal issues, or communication skills. Each blueprint is different, just as each clinical situation is unique. By simulating the actual decision-making process, learners gain a comfort level to make informed clinical judgments that will help them become successful nurses. Quite simply, Clinical Decision Making shortens the distance between the classroom and nursing practice like never before.
