Contemporary Issues in Coronary Care Nursing
In this text, Fiona Timmins integrates the findings of recent nursing research with key aspects of the nurse's role. She provides an evidence-based rationale for the best ways of improving cardiac care (in general and for specific conditions), describes important nursing initiatives to reduce the risk factors and presents a needs-based approach to patient education. Concerned with the need to bridge the current research-practice gap in coronary care, she knows how nurses can make the best use of available research and describes the advances that are being made in nurse-led services in this area.
Contemporary Issues in Coronary Care Nursing offers a non-medical approach to coronary care and is informed throughout by the latest nursing theory and research.
