Review:

"The presentation of this brightly coloured spiral-bound paperback book is in its 4th edition. The text is useful as an introduction for beginning practitioners and those in associate grade posts. The text would be recommended as bibliographical reading for students with referral to more specialist texts in the areas indicated above." Principles and Techniques of Patient Care March 2010
