"Mooi Standing's book provides an excellent application of the principal concepts of Cognitive Continuum Theory; her presentation is clear, accurate and her inferences show that she has a first rate grasp of the implications of the theory, and what it means for the care of patients. Her work should stand as a monument to the application of psychological theory to nursing care."
Professor Emeritus Kenneth R. Hammond, University of Colorado, USA

"This new text is a first in its ability to offer support to advanced practitioners … Each chapter gives insight into the professional requirements for advanced decision making and retains sight of the practical domain in which these decisions are carried out. Readers will improve their understanding, enhance their abilities in complex care situations and be confident in their ability to function at a higher level of practice."
Shirley Bach, Head of School, School of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Brighton, UK

"This is an excellent book if you are completing a module on decision making. It is well set out and easy to read with examples to explain. Well worth buying."
Amazon Reviewer

Sound clinical judgement and decision-making is vital to delivery of high quality, patient-centred, nursing and interprofessional healthcare. This book integrates the theory and practice of decision-making to guide and enhance practitioners' understanding and clinical expertise.

Mooi Standing presents relevant, contemporary theory and research that relates decision-making to:

  • Professional identity
  • Organization of healthcare
  • Developing knowledge and skills
  • Selecting and applying the most appropriate intervention in clinical practiceReal case studies written by various advanced practitioners demonstrate how to apply theory to practice in reviewing, explaining and continually developing clinical judgement and decision-making skills. A patient's account of care received for a serious illness provides a valuable patient-centred insight.

    The author's new 'reflexive-pragmatism' model summarizes the key knowledge, skills, values and processes of clinical judgement and decision-making, for readers to apply in reviewing and enhancing their own clinical practice. Extensive reflective activities and self assessment tools are included throughout the book.

    Clinical Judgement and Decision-Making is essential reading for qualified nurses, midwives and allied health professionals undertaking CPD modules in judgement and decision-making, evidence-based practice and reflective practice or studying to be advanced practitioners.
