'This excellent book provides a useful toolkit to nurses, midwives and health visitors... Above all it interprets policy in its relevance to practice, placing practice firmly at the heart of modern nursing.' - Extract from the Foreword by Sarah Mullally - Chief Nursing Officer/Director of Nursing'The book seems to be a very timely piece of work introducing and reflecting upon many aspects of the current political agenda challenging nursing and the National Health Service. As each chapter develops from a theory base to demonstration through examples in current practice, the reader can build a picture of how to negotiate local practice change in their own clinical area. I have not seen any other books currently taking the agenda set out in this book.' - Kevin Purvis, Director of Nursing, St George's Hospital National Health Service Trust, London
