In a time of extraordinary challenges, this book provides an important insight into what it means to deliver patient care. From theory to practice, high quality care must be at the heart of all that we do - Dr Peter Carter, Chief Executive & General Secretary, Royal College of Nursing
This is a book you could buy before starting on a nursing course and still be able to refer to it further on in your studies and even post-qualification. It addresses current and relevant topics often missed out in other texts and acknowledges some of the situations students and staff face.

I have never come across the caring debate in such detail or from such a highly original, realistic and refreshing angle before. The main strength of this book is that it is easy to read, inspiring and gives helpful practical advice to students so they can implement on placement what they have learned in theory.

We did not have a book such as this when I was training and I think it would have been invaluable, I also believe it would be a good ongoing resource to inform all practitioners. Well and clearly written with good balance of practical knowledge, theory and evidence base.
