Praise for previous editions— "The book is written by two journalists who have taken on the nursing profession more or less the way we take on patients with a life-threatening condition that is curable but requires both intensive and long-term care. The diagnosis, according to Buresh and Gordon, is silence. By being silent, we miss the opportunity to show ourselves as consequential in the delivery of healthcare. The remedy for silence, according to the authors, is voice—our voices raised in conversation first and foremost with our families, friends, and patients, and also with the general public."—Nursing Spectrum "This is an invaluable book for all nurses, especially those who are proud of being nurses and who have always wanted to make others understand our passion."—Nursing Standard To get the resources and respect they need, nurses have long had to be advocates for themselves and their profession, not just for their patients. For a decade, From Silence to Voice has provided nurses with the tools they need to explain the breath and complexity of nursing work. Bernice Buresh and Suzanne Gordon have helped nurses around the world speak up and convey to the public that nursing is more than dedication and caring—it demands specialized knowledge, expertise across a range of medical technologies, and decision-making about life-and-death issues. "Nurses and nursing organizations," they write, "must go out and tell the public what nurses really do so that patients can actually get the benefit of their expert care." The comprehensively revised and updated third edition of From Silence to Voice will help nurses construct messages using a range of traditional and new social media that accurately describe the true nature of their work. Because nurses are busy, the communication techniques in this book are designed to integrate naturally into nurses' everyday lives and to complement nurses' work with patients and families.
From Silence to Voice helps nurses explain their critical work to the public. This revised and freshly redesigned edition has been updated to address the most urgent issues and controversies in nursing. The second edition includes a new chapter that teaches nurses the pitfalls to avoid—and themes, issues, and evidence to include—when they construct stories about their work. Throughout, the authors include more information for nurse managers that will help them encourage and educate the nurses they supervise to end their silence. The second edition also features a revised chapter on nursing research and interactive exercises that will help nurses, educators, and managers put communication theory into practice.

This comprehensively revised and updated third edition helps nurses use a range of traditional and social media to accurately describe the true nature of their work.

Because nurses are busy, many of the communication techniques in this book are designed to integrate naturally into nurses' everyday lives and to complement nurses' work with patients and families.From Silence to Voice helps nurses explain their contributions to patient safety, satisfaction, and outcomes. It shows how nurses can communicate with various publics about important aspects of their work, such as how they master and employ complex medical technologies and regimens, and how they use their clinical judgment in life-and-death situations. "Nurses and nursing organizations," the authors write, "must go out and tell the public what nurses really do so that patients can actually get the benefit of their expert care."
Among the most fundamental decisions made by people in the workplace involves whether or not to express their ideas and concerns - or even if it is possible to do so. Voice and Silence in Organizations is a collection of 12 original essays that address these and related issues from a wide variety of scholarly perspectives. Chapters by highly regarded psychologists, sociologists and management scholars from around the world offer new conceptual insights and empirical findings that promise to become valuable contributions to this burgeoning area.
The editors of this book examine social movement scholars’ use of contemporary concepts and paradigms in the study of protest as they analyse the extent to which these tools are valid (or not) in very different regional - and thus political or cultural - contexts. The authors posit that ’weakly resourced groups’ are a particularly useful point of departure to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of three key social movement schools of analysis: resource mobilization, political opportunity structures, and frame analysis. Some of the groups considered in this volume are financially disadvantaged, lacking money and work; others are economically disadvantaged, with members having precarious, part-time, or short-term jobs; some are socially disadvantaged, with fragile networks of solidarity; others are culturally disadvantaged, with members continuously victimized, stigmatized and rejected; finally some are politically disadvantaged when they have little or no access to decision-making structures. These exclusionary factors can be cumulative and give way to different outcomes. The chapters cover a large range of examples including urban riots in France and in Great Britain, the World Social Forums of Dakar and Nairobi, the struggles of precarious workers in Italy and Greece, unemployed mobilization in Germany and Ireland, the mobilization of the Roma and Muslims in Europe, the Brazilian landless movement, the mobilization of small farmers in France, as well as mobilization in authoritarian states such as Morocco and Cuba. This book will be of interest to scholars, students and activists working within social movement studies.
