Appreciative Healthcare Practice: A Guide to Compassionate Person-Centred Care

All nursing education programmes and NHS trusts want their professionals to be caring and compassionate, and this book’s ‘three-eye model’ can help them to develop mindfulness and coaching skills.

Nurses adopting the model should examine their practices with an analytical eye to identify how they may ‘mis-care’, an appreciative eye to see patients as individuals and adopt a mindful approach, and a creative eye to adapt to patients’ complex situations.

The first chapters define and explore compassionate care and professionalism, and the final section on mindfulness and coaching explains how to develop the appreciative and creative eyes.

The book would be suitable for individuals and libraries, as well as being a useful resource for education programmes.
