Summary "AACN Protocols for Practice: Creating Healing Environments discusses the benefits of creating a healing environment for critically ill patients and their families and how changes to a patient's environment can promote healing. Family needs, visitation, complementary therapies, and pain management are also covered. Each protocol directs clinicians in the appropriate selection of patients, use and application of management principles, initial and ongoing monitoring, discontinuation of therapies or interventions, and selected aspects of quality control."--BOOK JACKET
