Thoroughly recommended"--Molly Courtenay, Reading University, UK. 'Sue Jordan has combined her deep understanding of her own discipline with her long experience of teaching nurses, to produce just the right type and level of information that nurses need, in a format that they will find relevant to their practice and easy to use.
