"This new edition is worth buying, too." ( Nursing Standard,July 2010) The first edition of this book was published 20 years ago and Iwish I had seen it then. It is only over the last 10 years or sothat I have actively become more interested and this book wouldhave certainly stimulated my interest much sooner. If you are undertaking a research activity it is a book thathelps you each step of the way. A very understandable and enjoyablepublication. Accident and Emergency Nursing Journal
