"The standard of material is very high and, although the book covers most aspects of intervention, both physical and psychological, this is never at the expense of providing an adequate level of coverage. This book represents essential reading for nurses in clinical practice, regardless of specialism or practice setting." Rob Newell, Clinical Effectiveness in Nursing, Vol. 4,, January 2000
