    Published Reviews "This text will appeal to a wide professional audience owing to the breadth of the discussion; this does not, however, detract from the analytical and academic depth of the text." Nicole Clibbens, Clinical Effectiveness in Nursing
    is the rarest of commodities - a book that explains things clearly and manages not to patronise. It also succeeds in making the reader feel equipped, rather than demoralised. Contributes hugely to the debate, and is honest and thought-provoking." Kate Bones, Nursing Times, Vol 94, no 36, 1998
