Summary "The case narrative approach of this book promotes active learning that is more meaningful to students (and practicing nurses) and more likely to increase the transfer of evidence into practice. An excellent resource for faculty (staff educators) to facilitate critical learning skills." Liz Capezuti, PhD, RN, FAAN. Dr. John W. Rowe Professor in Successful Aging. Co-Director, Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing. New York University College of Nursing. This is a terrific text that provides nurses and other health care providers [with] good basic information.
