Quality and Safety in Nursing: A Competency Approach to Improving Outcomes
May 2012, ©2012, Wiley-Blackwell
Quality and Safety in Nursing is divided into three sections. The first section links the national initiative for quality and safety to its origins in the IOM report. Section Two defines each of the six QSEN competencies in turn, provides instruction on acquiring the skills needed to achieve each competency, and constructs a framework for implementation. Section Three further defines implementation strategies in formal education as well as transition into practice.
A key resource for academics and clinicians alike, Quality and Safety in Nursing is an essential addition to the library of nurse leaders across the globe.
