Care Trajectory Management: Foundations in the Organising Work of Nurses

'Care trajectory management' refers to the work that nurses do to coordinate and organise patient care. It's a relatively unseen element of the nursing role that is absolutely vital for patient safety and quality care.

Care Trajectory Management for Nurses is the first ever textbook of its kind for nurse educators, practice facilitators and policy makers as well as undergraduate nurses. It is both a theoretical and practical resource covering the concepts and theories around the organisational components of nursing practice, derived the research of nurse academic Davina Allen.
