Nursing documentation is often seen as a tiresome chore - although this is an understandable view, the reality is that in addition to meeting ethical and other professional requirements the good performance of documentation in aged care can add to the nurse's personal satisfaction with their role. This book shows how nursing assessments, care plans, and progress notes can allow nurses to share their knowledge, observations, and skills - and thus make a crucial contribution to their own professional lives and to the quality of life of those in their care. More than a 'how-to-do-it' workbook, with contributions from a range of experts this comprehensive evidence-based textbook explores the issues surrounding documentation and reveals the importance of professional communication within multidisciplinary teams.
