Nursing in context: policy, politics, profession

Traynor, Michael ORCID logoORCID: (2013) Nursing in context: policy, politics, profession. Palgrave Macmillan, London. ISBN 9780230368736. [Book]


Providing a critical historical and policy insight into the key issues that affect nurses – including professional regulation, interprofessional working, NHS restructures, whistle-blowing and poor performance – Michael Traynor explores the meanings and historical development of key concepts in modern nursing professional practice, so that they are more than just buzzwords to be learned and remembered. Introducing the most important issues and debates for today’s nurses with a combination of readability, wit, criticality and sophistication rare in nursing textbooks, it makes an ideal resource for modules that deal with professional issues such as autonomy or teamwork.
Drawing on the author’s policy research in nursing and healthcare over the past twenty years, Nursing in Context provides real-life examples of how politics, policy and practice interact, and ends with a positive picture for the future of nursing from the leaders of the profession.
