This open educational resource (OER) was developed to ensure best practice and quality care based on the latest evidence, and to address inconsistencies in how clinical health care skills are taught and practised in the clinical setting. The checklist approach, used in this textbook, aims to provide standardized processes for clinical skills and to help nursing schools and clinical practice partners keep procedural practice current. Each skill/procedure is covered in a chapter that has learning objectives, a brief overview of the relevant theory, checklists of steps for procedures with the rationale behind each step of the process, and a summary of key takeaways. Key terms are set in bold throughout the book and laid out again in a Glossary in the appendix. All 88 checklists are also summarized, and hyperlinked to the original checklist, in the appendix.
This ancillary resource is intended to be used by faculty in conjunction with Clinical Procedures for Safer Patient Care – Thompson Rivers University Edition. The chapters in this text intentionally coincide with chapters in Clinical Procedures for Safer Patient Care - Thompson Rivers University Edition to allow for easier cross referencing between the texts. This resource provides answers to the critical thinking questions that accompany each chapter of the aforementioned text. In some cases, learning activities and sample quiz questions are provided to support faculty in their teaching. More importantly they are meant to help learners develop their ability to critically think, to apply information in a variety of contexts and to achieve necessary learning outcomes toward being a safe competent nurse. The critical thinking questions, learning activities and sample quiz questions were developed with a BScN student in mind. Faculty can adapt the question(s) and / or expected answers based on the type of nursing program and level of student.
