About this book

Developments in telenursing are occurring at a great pace. In a very short time and driven by technical developments, the field of telenursing has become too extensive to be covered by only a small number of experts. As a consequence, there is a need for a broad overview of the field to enable the concepts to be understood by a wider population.
Telenursing is presented in such a way that it should make it accessible to anyone, independent of their knowledge of technology and has been written with contributions from a host of renowned international authorities in telenursing. Books on theoretical and technical aspects inevitably use technical jargon, and this book is no exception, but it is kept to a minimum in an effort to maximize clarity. Moreover the book has been organised systematically, thus ensuring that the content is concise and easy to read. Every chapter provides a comprehensive list of citations and references for further reading. Figure drawings and clinical photographs throughout the book illustrate and illuminate the text, providing readers with high-quality visual reference material. It is therefore appropriate for all professionals, including nurses, physicians, allied health professionals and computer scientists to help them understand the changes going on and how best to make use of them in practice.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“In an era of increasingly restrictive health care reimbursement patterns coupled with rapidly changing patient demographics, Telenursing is an important text for readers considering taking part in the development and expansion of this evolving, technology-based model of care delivery. … The strength of this book is the clarity provided by the concise systematic structure the editors have established for the contributors’ chapter submissions. … Clinicians from all disciplines are well advised to understand and participate in the development of both telenursing and telehealth.” (Lisa Wentworth Smith, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 307 (1), January, 2012)
