This important reference addresses the issue of integrating the art of caring with the science of biomedical knowledge in the practice of nursing. This innovative text looks at the ways that nurses have demonstrated care through recorded history since the writings of Florence Nightengale and how caring modalities, now referred to as "Complementary Therapies" have been used. With this reflection on the past we can learn to develop new techniques to integrate complementary therapies into present day nursing practice that has become highly technical. This integration is essential in meeting the public's call for complementary therapies.

"Demonstrating Care is a wake-up call for nurses to give critical thought to what nursing should/could be in the new millenium....Martha Libster's work brings with it many important philosophical concerns. This book will be an important contribution to nursing."
