Editorial Reviews

Ed Shields
I think the way in which this book, in keeping with others in this series, maps directly to NMC Essential Skills Clusters and Competency Framework makes it a clear and direct benefit to under-graduate pre-registration nursing students. I commend the extensive and useful reading suggested at the end of each chapter and I find many of the web sites particularly helpful. [...] As someone who teaches undergraduate, pre-registration students on a third year Evidence Based Practice module, which requires the completion of a 5000 word literature review, I can certainly recommend this book to nursing students who have to complete any similar project. Anyone (nurse or otherwise), who has to complete any research based modules on a post-graduate programme will derive benefit from this book.
