Healthcare publisher Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW), part of Wolters Kluwer Health, US, has announced a partnership with Laerdal Medical. Under the deal, Lippincott’s print and online nursing content will be integrated with Laerdal’s state-of-the-art simulators and superior simulation programmes.
Practicing nurses and nursing students will now gain access to real-world clinical simulation packages that will advance their technical skills and critical thinking abilities. The Lippincott/Laerdal simulators will enable nursing students to experience real-world scenarios that correspond to their nursing courses, strengthen skills, and build critical thinking competencies. Practicing nurses will reinforce their knowledge base with clinical scenarios that correspond with their specialty.
The first product will be a Medical-Surgical Nursing simulation package that provides clinical scenarios using web-based content from the 12th edition of Brunner & Suddarth’s Textbook of Medical–Surgical Nursing; Lippincott’s Nursing Advisor, an online reference program with more than 2100 evidence-based, quick access entries on diseases, diagnostic tests, drugs, treatments, and nursing care plans; and Lippincott’s Procedures and Skills, an online program with more than 900 step-by-step, evidence-based nursing procedures and skills and over 1200 full colour images and videos.
