It describes the normal processes and issues which arise at different stages in a person's life connected with sexuality, and goes on to describe the particular issues and concerns that arise when there is illness, disfigurement, physical or mental disability.
The Challenge of Sexuality in Health Care will provide qualified nurses, students, and health care professionals with the confidence to encourage patients to raise any concerns they might have.
Relationship-Based Care provides a practical framework for addressing current challenges and is intended to benefit health care organizations in which commitment to care and service to patients is strong and focused. It will also prove useful in organizations searching for solutions to complex struggles with patient, staff and physician dissatisfaction; difficulty recruiting and retaining and developing talented staff members; conflicted work relationships and related quality issues. The book is the result of 25 years of experience of Creative Health Care Management, a nursing management consulting firm founded by Marie Manthey.
The authors begin by looking at key general principles including the physiology of wound healing and general principles of wound management, before going on to explore the management of both acute and chronic wounds, including leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and surgical wounds as well as care of peri-wound skin, pain management and quality of life issues. These vital aspects and principles of care are discussed within an up to date and evidence based context and provide the knowledge and skills necessary to enable the delivery of optimum patient wound care.

I have not found another book like this with such detailed and comprehensive information in a multitude of areas. It will be a great help to nurse managers." Score: 97, 5 Stars--Doody's Medical Reviews
This work is more than a mere academic attempt to define basic management concepts, but rather is a robust toolkit, providing real-life examples and experiences coupled with actual tools and techniques, allowing novice nurse managers to understand concepts such as supply chain management, financial management, and labor and productivity modeling. Additionally, this book serves as a roadmap to the successful implementation of these concepts. I think the author can be confident that there will be many grateful nurse leaders who will have gained a broader perspective of their evolving role, and about how to best implement those practices.
