Review quote

My personal choice would be the Oxford Handbook, because of its more recent publication and inclusion of later evidence and practice guidelines and its UK health perspective Journal of Renal Nursing This concise primer is designed as a bedside or office tool for busy practitioners who may want to quickly review certain topics or get immediate answers as well as an essential aid in the dialysis unit.
