'...ideal both for students undertaking pre-registration training and for those following postbasic diploma and degree courses ...also a useful reference text for nurse teachers' (Review of 1st edition: Nursing Times) This successful textbook has been updated to reflect the continuing changes within nursing and to take account of recent research. However, the qualities that made the first edition so popular - readability, clarity, range and depth, academic underpinning, worked examples and exercises - have all been retained.
