Campbell s Physiology Notes For Nurses

Author: John Campbell
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470032411
Release Date: 2006-02-22
Genre: Medical

This accessible and friendly text is based on the premise that all nurses need a working knowledge of the normal functioning of the human body. It is only when we understand the normal that the abnormal pathological situation makes sense. If we can understand how the body goes wrong then it often becomes obvious what needs to be done to treat the disorder. So physiology and pathophysiology can both be used to inform our clinical interventions and provide us with rationales for care. In this concise text, John Campbell explains the physiology and necessary basic science in a way that is easy to understand and learn. Diagrams are an important part of this philosophy.

Theoretical Nursing

"An additional assumption was that the processes for theory development were new to nursing and hence, nurses in graduate programs learned strategies for advancing knowledge from other disciplines. This assumption was debunked with the knowledge that nurses were always engaged in knowledge development, driven by their experiences in clinical practice. Because of these assumptions, most of the early writing about theory development was about outlining strategies that should be used, rather than strategies that have already been used in the discipline to develop theories. Theorists themselves did not uncover or adequately discuss ways by which they developed their theories, therefore the tendency was to describe processes that were based on theories developed in other disciplines, mainly the physical and social sciences. And an implicit assumption was made that there should be a single strategy for theory development, some claiming to begin the process from practice, and others believing it should be driven by research"--Provided by publisher.
