This pack contains 1 copy of Kozier and Erb’s Fundamentals of Nursing, 1 copy of Critical Conversations for Patient Safety: An Essential Guide for Health Professionals and 1 printed access card to MyLab Nursing with eText.

The fourth Australian edition of Kozier and Erb’s Fundamentals of Nursing has undergone a rigorous review and writing process and reflects the contemporary changes in the regulation of nursing.

It continues to focus on the three core philosophies of person-centred care, critical thinking and clinical reasoning and cultural safety. These three philosophical foundations are interwoven in a meaningful way through each chapter.

With an evidence-based approach, students will develop skills in problem solving, critical thinking, clinical reasoning and learn to care for people in ways that signify respect, acceptance, empathy, connectedness, cultural sensitivity and genuine concern. Note: This edition provides relevant nursing diagnoses written in a way that is reflective of Australia nursing practice and nomenclature and does not refer to NANDA taxonomy of diagnostic terminology.

Pearson MyLab™ is the world's leading online self-study, homework, tutorial and assessment product designed with a single purpose in mind: to improve the results of all higher education students, one student at a time.

Please note: The duration of access to a MyLab is set by your instructor for your specific unit of study. To access the MyLab you need a Course ID from your instructor.


While a number of books address the concept of therapeutic communication, i.e. communication between health professionals and their patients, few extend this focus to include communication between health professionals, fewer still address the critical relationship between communication and patient safety.  Critical Conversations in Patient Safety bridges that gap.
