The fourth Australian edition of Kozier and Erb's Fundamentals of Nursing has undergone a rigorous review and writing process and reflects the contemporary changes in the regulation of nursing. It continues to focus on the three core philosophies of person-centred care, critical thinking and clinical reasoning and cultural safety. These three philosophical foundations are interwoven in a meaningful way through each chapter. With an evidence-based approach, students will develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, clinical reasoning and learn to care for people in ways that signify respect, acceptance, empathy, connectedness, cultural sensitivity and genuine concern. MyLab Nursing can be packaged with this edition to engage students and allow them to apply their knowledge, strengthen their understanding of key concepts and develop critical decision making skills. Note: This edition provides relevant nursing diagnoses written in a way that is reflective of Australia nursing practice and nomenclature and does not refer to NANDA taxonomy of diagnostic terminology.
