Summary Decision-making is a key skill for today's nurses. Nursing: Decision-Making Skills for Practice is an essential guide for student nurses that prepares them to make effective decisions on the ward and in the community. This new title in the Prepare for Practice series details the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to make good decisions across a variety of nursing areas: from involving patients in decision making, to using the best evidence in care planning. Case studies, activities, and exercises ensure that theories of decision-making are brought into real-world nursing situations .
