LeMone and Burke’s Medical-Surgical Nursing: Critical Thinking for Person-Centered Care
  • Students are supported by a broad range of learning features and opportunities, including pathophysiology illustrated artwork, fast fact boxes, links to National Patient Safety Standards breakouts and much more.
  • The content is organised in a way that introduces medical-surgical nursing, then provides context, before building on that knowledge with specific alterations in human structure and function.
  • The content also provides the Australian context and the nuances, uniqueness and cultural inclusiveness of medical surgical nursing in Australia. Chapter One introduces the concept of culturally competent healthcare with particular attention to the culture and history of Indigenous peoples in Australia. Focus on cultural diversity boxes present cultural nursing in context and highlight the importance of acknowledging the dignity, culture, values, beliefs and rights of not only Indigenous Australians but also people from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds. These themes are threaded throughout the text.
