Industry Reviews

This book offers a frank, jargon-busting and infinitely readable introduction to PBL...I recommend this book to all involved in the education and training of nurses as a comprehensive and inspiring guide to PBL. I also recommend it highly to student nurses unfamiliar or new to PBL.' - extract from the foreword by Sally Glen, Professor of Nursing Education and Dean, St Bartholomew School of Nursing & Midwifery, City University
