Veterinary Nursing Care Plans: Theory and Practice, (PDF) is the first veterinary textbook devoted to nursing care plans. It provides a broad overview of the theory and practice of care planning in veterinary nursing, answering three crucial questions:
- What are nursing care plans?
- Why should nursing care plans be used in practice?
- How should nursing care plans be used in practice?
Author Helen Ballantyne offers basic definitions and explanations which will be helpful to those unfamiliar with nursing care plans. The content encourages debate and discussion for those veterinary technicians and nurses using nursing care plans by including some of the theoretical and philosophical aspects of nursing and drawing comparisons and contrasts between the human and veterinary nursing roles and contexts.
There is a persistent need for veterinary nurses to establish themselves as professionals and build their unique roles within the veterinary care team. Nursing care plans are a vital tool to support that development. It is expected that veterinary nurses may borrow tools from the pages of this ebook or use them as a resource to design their exclusive care plans. Either way, this practical guide will support the application of care planning, irrespective of the species of the animal kingdom for whom you are caring.
