Caring: The Compassion and Wisdom of Nursing is a collection of essays that will encourage nurses to consider more deeply what caring means to them, to their patients, to society and to their profession. Aimed at a wide audience of nurses, this text is a valuable resource for all health professionals interested in caring and the arena in which it takes place. The authors look at the cultural and historical origins of caring, the practical and professional responsibilities that caring involves, the personal and professional strengths necessary in order to care, and the role that the arts and humanities play in promoting caring sensitivities. This unique approach to the subject puts caring into a sharp and clear focus. Each chapter requires a different type of reflection and the various approaches together form an interesting picture of both the complexities and simplicities inherent in caring.
