Nursing involves caring for the whole person, and taking care of both physical and psychosocial needs. This book aims to help the reader to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to care for the whole person and to ensure the patient is at the centre of the care-giving experience.

The book considers different aspects of therapeutic nursing care and explains how you can make the most of opportunities to nurse the whole person. Key topics covered include:

  • Understanding the personal experience of illness
  • Communication and listening skills
  • Developing nurse–patient relationships
  • Psychosocial assessment skills
  • Using psychotherapeutic approaches Since it is common for those who are physically ill to feel psychologically vulnerable, the book also has chapters exploring how to care for patients who are anxious, depressed, psychotic or display challenging behaviours.

    All chapters include case studies and personal stories of illness to help illustrate the range of practice opportunities for improving your nursing care of the whole person.

    An essential read for all nurses looking to hone their craft and for those preparing to qualify who want a deeper understanding of the true art of nursing.
