Review quote

"Every generation of student nurses has one book that becomes their 'bible'...This book has the potential to be the first point of reference for today's generation." Heather McLelland, Sister and Accident and Emergency, Accident and Emergency Nursing Vol 9 No 4, October 2001
excellent reading for post-registration nurses who have forgotten the basics. However, far from being basic, this book contains a wealth of knowledge which reflects current research and practice while maintaining a focus on the holistic care of the patient." Paul Wicker, British Journal of Perioperative Nursing, vol 11, March 2001
