Dedicated time spent with patients and families in clinical settings is often limited, rushed, and impersonal. How can nurses develop more positive, caring relationships with their patients, and help to improve the quality of patient care at large?
This book addresses this critical question by presenting Joanne R. Duffy's Quality-Caring Model©-the result of 35 years of clinical experience and educational acumen. This values-based model will bring caring back into the foreground of nursing practice by providing revised curricula for educational programs, and outlining the core caring principles for nurse administrators.
Written in clear, accessible language, this book will be an invaluable resource to nursing students, nursing scholars, clinical nurses, nurse educators, nurse researchers, and nurse leaders. Duffy's approach will help create a redesigned patient care delivery system focused on the primacy of caring relationships.

"..certainly a great resource for use in any healthcare setting." Reviewed by Anne Duell on behalf of Nursing Times, September 2015UNIQUE! Emphasis on the NCLEX Examination’s management-of-care focus addresses the heavy emphasis on prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment in the current NCLEX Examination (17–23% of the 2013 NCLEX-RN Exam).UNIQUE! Three-part organization establishes foundational knowledge and then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help you build confidence in your prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills.Answer key at the back of the book offers a detailed rationale and an indication of the focus of the question to encourage formative assessment.Introduction chapter by delegation expert Ruth Hansten provides guidelines for prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment decisions as well as a concise, practical foundation on which Parts 2 and 3 build.Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios give you practice in applying the principles from Part 1 with straightforward NCLEX-style multiple-choice, multiple-select, ordering, and short-answer questions to help you develop and build confidence in prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills while working within the confines of relatively simple health scenarios.Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios utilizes unfolding cases that build on the skills learned in Part 2 to equip you to make sound decisions in realistic, complex health scenarios involving complicated health problems and/or challenging patient assignment decisions and help you learn to "think like nurses" by developing what Benner (2010) calls "clinical imagination."
