Wherever you are in your career - this book offers a great deal to inspire and to provoke thought. We could all learn from it." Nursing Standard "This book is timely. The increasing emphasis on the need for good leadership is signalled by the establishment across the world of new leadership development initiatives. In the United Kingdom, for example, this includes the new NHS National Leadership Council that will champion the transformation of leadership capacity and capability across the healthcare system. Effective leadership is crucial for improving the quality of care for patients and others and for developing staff.

It aims to empower all health care providers to fully realise their potential as a leader and demonstrates how this can be achieved in reality. It is inspirational, exciting to read with its many different case studies, exercises to bring about reflection and should result in a more empowered and enlightened work force." Phil Halligan, University College Dublin, Ireland "With the increased focus on clinical leadership this book is a welcome addition to the vast array of leadership books currently available and will appeal to a wide range of practising clinicians looking for an introduction to the subject. The use of historical case studies allows comparison of leadership styles of a range of well known figures and sets the scene for an exploration of some of the multitude of leadership theories that are available in the literature ... Readers who are currently practising clinicians, regardless of profession, should use this opportunity to 'stand up and be counted' and to take forward the leadership agenda in their professions for the benefit of patients and inform future practice and knowledge."

The Future of Nursing by The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year.
Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care.
In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

Decision-Making in Midwifery Practice by The book looks at a broad perspective of decision making and each chapter focuses on a specific aspect related to making crucial decisions. Following an initial introduction the book explores the concept of autonomy and the many factors that influence autonomous practise. The role of knowledge in decision making, using evidence to inform decisions, as well as different approaches to decision making are also examined - including the traditional or rational approach, decision analysis and the development of professional judgement. Dilemmas arise when decisions are made and therefore ethical decision making is an important component of this book. Management decisions may be different from those related to giving specific care to women, hence one chapter focuses on making management decisions. Emphasis is also placed on the role of the midwife in helping women make their own decisions, the role of reflection in enhancing the decisions midwives make and the support midwives can receive from their Supervisor of Midwives. Flowcharts explain and facilitate the decision-making process. A very practical approach to decision-making in midwifery, with contributions from midwives who have considerable experience in this area Provides guidelines on how to achieve successful autonomous midwifery practice, enabling theory to be effectively applied to practice Includes coverage of management roles and decision-making as well as clinical scenarios, offering frameworks and flowcharts to guide the inexperienced Suggests different approaches to making difficult decisions
