The overall aim of Knowledge for Contemporary Nursing Practice is to facilitate the exploration and understanding of theoretical and professional issues that have relevance for contemporary nursing practice. Many nurses believe that nursing theory and professional issues are something they only need to know about in order to complete nursing courses and that they have little relevance for their everyday practice. This book challenges this notion and relates how the practice of nursing is not an isolated endeavour, but happens in a socio-political world whose influences are pervasive. It locates the theoretical basis of nursing and explores the professional issues that challenge nurses in contemporary practice.Table of Contents: Section 1 The nature of nursing knowledge 1 - Why is philosophy relevant to nursing? 2 - How do we know? 3 - What is nursing theory? 4 - What is the relationship between nursing theory, research and practice?
