The importance of sound clinical skills is emphasized by trusts and students alike, but research into project 2000 courses has identified skills deficits in Diplomates. Developing Practical Nursing Skills is an interactive book for pre-registration common foundation programme students to work through to gain knowledge, understanding and confidence in relation to the essential clinical skills, relevant to all branches of nursing. The text follows a problem-based learning format - each chapter starts with case scenarios from different branches, and the skills learning is placed in the context of care. Information and explanation are provided, and activities are incorporated for the student to work through with follow up answers. Relevant research is included throughout, and the book also emphasizes evidence-based practice.
