This book offers an important, creative approach to understanding more about the nature and development of compassionate nursing care, at a time of particular pressures and changes in the health care sector.' - Professor Kathleen McCourt, Dean of the School of Health, Community and Education Studies, Northumbria University, and Chair of the RCN Council
