Created especially for nurses, the Clinical Decision Making series helps to bridge the gap between content knowledge and clinical application. Case Studies in Psychiatric Nursing is the fourth installment in this innovative series, providing forty psychiatric nursing case histories, questions, and responses based on real-life client situations. Every case contains an introductory "blueprint" of variables that must be considered while evaluating a particular scenario, which are pertinent concerning the client, nursing protocol, and setting of care. Examples of these variables include age, gender, culture of the client, pre-existing condition, legal issues, or communication skills. Each blueprint and case is different, just as each clinical situation is unique. By simulating the actual decision-making process, learners gain the confidence necessary to make informed clinical judgments that will help them become successful nurses. Quite simply, Clinical Decision Making shortens the distance between the classroom and nursing practice like no other educational tool.
