This second edition graduate textbook and reference guide for nurses presents a practice-focused intervention from the notable Artinian Intersystem Model. While the first edition focused largely on theory, this second editions seeks to integrate both theory and practice to ultimately help enhance the nurse-patient relationship as well as nursing practice at large. The authors offer practical care plans at various levels of expertise across the continuum of care, from acute care to long term care to resolve concerns through joint decision making and to document interventions. The text establishes exclusive care plans and scales for the Artinian Intersystem Model to document changes in health status. The book also employs evidence-based, Glaserian Grounded Theory research methods, and serves as a companion to Springer Publishing's Glaserian Grounded Theory in Nursing Research. Key features: Uses evidence-based Grounded Theories to guide clinical nursing practice Establishes a care plan that accounts for the interaction of the biological, psychosocial, and spiritual subsystems Discusses the application of the Artinian Intersystem Model in various practice settings, including community health, cosmetic procedures, case management, and assisted living Book includes a link to a digital adjunct containing forms for applying the model at the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as conceptual maps of research used for sample care plans
