Written by experts from around the globe (USA, Europe, Australia and Asia) this book explains technical issues, digital information processing and collective experiences from practitioners in different parts of the world practicing a wide range of telenursing applications including telenursing research by professionals in the field.
This book lays the foundations for the globalisation of telenursing procedures, making it possible to know that a nursing service could perform on a patient anywhere in the world.
From the reviews:
"In an era of increasingly restrictive health care reimbursement patterns coupled with rapidly changing patient demographics, Telenursing is an important text for readers considering taking part in the development and expansion of this evolving, technology-based model of care delivery. ... The strength of this book is the clarity provided by the concise systematic structure the editors have established for the contributors' chapter submissions. ... Clinicians from all disciplines are well advised to understand and participate in the development of both telenursing and telehealth." (Lisa Wentworth Smith, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 307 (1), January, 2012)
