Review of Second Edition:
For me, the most user friendly book I have read this month is Nursing in Care Homes by Linda Nazarko. This book is probably as useful to those nurses in primary care trusts, who are working increasingly with nursing home nurses, as it is for nursing home nurses themselves.
