November 2022 | 352 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

A clear, accessible and evidence-based introduction to effective decision-making in nursing. It discusses the processes and frameworks that support clinical reasoning and applies theory and knowledge to the nursing context.

Activities and case studies provide regular opportunities to apply theory to practice with real-world examples of decision making in action provided throughout that encourage students to reflect on and draw from their own lived experiences.

The book has been carefully developed to meet the requirements of the NMC Future Nurse Standards and draws from many of the lessons learned during the Covid-19 pandemic making this a rich learning resource for all student nurses.
