""This book is a real gem - useful not only for nurses, but for all healthcare professionals, students and educators wanting to develop their communication skills. One is reminded that it is not always about 'what' is said, but 'how' it is said. This book will be a great resource for those advocating interprofessional working, while keeping the patient's perspective in the reader's mind throughout."
Dr Susanne Lindqvist, Senior Lecturer in Interprofessional Education, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK.
