What Reviewers Are Saying
'Although written primarily for nursing and midwifery students, this book could support all healthcare workers who are required to write documents, essays or presentations as part of their work.' - Nursing Standard (4 stars) 'I know of no other book which incorporates all the sections that this one does.' - Karen Holland, School of Nursing, University of Salford, UK 'I don't think that I have come across a book before which provides so much detail and so many examples.' - Claire Hale, Dame Kathleen Raven Professor of Clinical Nursing, University of Leeds, UK 'This is a very useful text for students commencing our year one BA Midwifery (Hons) course. It would be useful for some of the 18 month students who have difficulty with academic writing.' - School of Care Services, University of Glamorgan, UK (adopter of first edition) 'Why did such a book not exist when I was in my early study years? The content is compact, interesting and easy to read. Very informative.' - Institute of Nursing and Midwifery, University of Brighton, UK (adopter of first edition) 'A good supportive text for students new to this level of study. I particularly like examples and the clearly identified steps. This guides the student enabling them to see how to proceed and giving them confidence to develop.' - School of Health and Social Care, Staffordshire University, UK (adopter of first edition) 'I would strongly recommend this text to support new students who are required to write reflective writing on clinical practice and who are new to the concepts/format of academic writing. Excellent resource and very affordable.' - Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery, King's College London, UK (adopter of first edition)
