Psicologia per l'infermiere delle moderne strutture ospedaliere

a cura di M. P. Viggiano

editore: Carocci

pagine: 156

In una moderna struttura ospedaliera, la professione di infermiere richiede non solo una preparazione specialistica relativa alla particolare area clinica e organizzativa in cui opera, ma anche competenze in ambito psicologico. Infatti l'infermiere deve confrontarsi con complessi problemi psicologici che insorgono spesso sia nell'interazione con i pazienti e i loro famigliari sia nella gestione delle attività di reparto in collaborazione con il personale medico. I fenomeni di stress e burnout sono quindi frequenti, con effetti negativi sulla funzionalità del servizio svolto e sul benessere psichico. Il libro illustra i temi della psicologia più rilevanti per la professione di infermiere. I primi tre capitoli trattano i concetti principali della psicologia generale e clinica (la struttura della mente, i processi cognitivi e dinamici, i disturbi psichici, la relazione clinica e la psicoterapia) e gli strumenti di autovalutazione (test di ansia, stress, burnout e qualità della vita). I successivi cinque capitoli analizzano le problematiche psicologiche tipiche di questa professione in relazione ai servizi di emergenza, alle cure primarie, alla terapia intensiva e alle cure di fine di vita.
