International Practice Development in Nursing builds on Practice Development in Nursing, edited by the same editors and is the first book to develop a truly international practice development perspective. Practice development is a key concept in developing effective nursing care which is firmly embedded in health service modernisation agendas, clinical governance strategies, team and cultural developments and in quality improvements that directly impact on patient care in the UK and internationally. Practice development acknowledges the interplay between the development of knowledge and skills, enablement strategies, facilitation and a systematic, rigorous and continuous processes of emancipatory change in order to achieve evidence-based, person-centred care. International Practice Development in Nursing is an essential resource for all practice developers and for nurses with a remit for facilitating innovation and change in practice.
