This book explores nursing and complexity science, and investigates how they relate in research, education, and practice. The book examines the best methods for using complex systems, and the contributing authors are experts drawn from nursing, sociology, informatics, and mathematics. Each is actively involved in applying complexity science to diverse populations in various settings (especially, in terms of nursing, chronic care, health care organizations, and community health networks). Each chapter includes a response written by a nursing scholar, administrator, or practitioner, focusing on chapter concepts relevant to the complex systems seen in nursing. The book includes models that relate how these concepts can be used in practice, management, education, and research-from micro to macro scales. The first of its kind, this book demonstrates the potential of complex systems perspectives to understand and improve nursing and health care research, education, and practice.
