Review quote

-Whilst primarily aimed at clinicians, the superb readability of the text, combined with excellent illustrations, broadens its appeal to the wider renal care community.This is an excellent clinical and educational resource that I can thoroughly recommend to all members of the multidisciplinary team involved in the day-to-day care and management of renal patients.--Pugh-Clarke K, PhD, MSc, BSc, RN; Journal of Renal Care 2008:110.
