1 Review
This book, now in its fourth edition, has been updated to include material focused on evidence-based practice. Covering the complete spectrum of education as applied to nursing and health care professions, this book maintains the blend of theoretical principles and practical applications that has proved successful over the preceding three editions. Among the important developments discussed are the replacement of UKCC and the four National Boards with a new Nursing and Midwifery Council, the initiative to establish the National Institute for Clinical Excellence and the move to incorporate clinical effectiveness into the clinical governance framework. Frank Quinn brings together all the major changes that apply to educators within the National Health Service, making this essential textbook an authoritative source of guidance, up-to-date information and reference.
