Recent increased utilization of unlicensed personnel for bedside care threatens not only nursing as a profession but also, and more importantly, the quality of care enjoyed by patients and clients. Part of the reason for this increses has been attributed to inadequate systems for defining the true value and cost of nursing. Over the years nursing models have been develped to explain what nursing is with respect to individual patients or client care. Nursing Administration in a Self-Care Theoretical Context seeks to define nursing at a management or administrative level. Using the widely regarded Ormen self-care deficit model to provide a nursing focus, the authors expolore the nursing needs of populations, the role and functions of advanced practice nursing and administration, and the administrative structures, processes and outcomes that faciliate nursing practice.The book opens with an examiniation of the changing nature of health care systems and nursing's plans in them. Subsequently the authors examine models of administration, descriptions of populations in terms of nursing service needs, the processes of administration, nursing system designs, clinical documentation and information systems, quality control in terms of patient outcomes and nursing standards, nursing cost management, personnel management, and strategies for implementing theory-based nursing into the delivery of nursing services.This volume will prove an important resource to nursing administrators, and to scholars and educators in nursing administration and nursing science.
