This book gives the foundation for starting a nursing peer review committee. There is not much in the literature to assist in the development and this provides basic templates and introduction of the concepts. The CD-Rom is accompanied with some of these templates. Provides you with the opportunity to further develop the process in order to fit your organizations culture and needs along with state laws.
