Planning the care of patients is one of most important aspects of a nurse’s role. Adopting an interactive approach, this book explores the theory of care planning and discusses how this relates to clinical nursing practice. Three patient scenarios are referred to throughout the second part of the book, with completed care plans included for reference purposes.  Each chapter contains short activities to test your knowledge, and opportunities to reflect on your own practice.  The book also provides a link between classic nursing theories and modern approaches to care planning.

‘Care Planning: A Guide for Nurses’ has been designed to support nursing students and registered practitioners early in their careers, and is recommended as a core text for pre-registration courses.

"A useful text that is current and clearly presented" Linda Barton, Liverpool John Moores University

"This book is excellent and I shall be recommending it to the students in my class as it is really easy to understand and important that all students know the theory and knowledge behind care planning and how to apply this appropriately in practice." - Michelle Lochrie, Student Nurse, University of Stirling
