Understanding Nursing Documentation
Nursing documentation is vitally important, and it is essential that all aged care facilities have a clear vision of their objectives and requirements with respect to this aspect of care. It is essent...ial that nurses follow the documentation requirements of the organisation in which they work. This chapter instructs nurses on the basics of nursing documentation, including the legal issues involved.
Clinical reasoning is the process of reaching clinical conclusions through professional judgement, knowledge and experience. It also involves an understanding of the politics of clinical practice. Nur...ses in aged care need to understand the regulatory, political and social customs that dictate the care that is provided, when it is provided and who provides it. This chapter instructs nurses on how to understand Clinical Reasoning, its politics and its conflicts with documentation.
