The book aims to counter some of the issues of nursing care in recent years in line with the 6Cs challenge, it has a focus on compassion and person-centred care.Throughout the book there will be people’s stories of their experiences of nursing care, which will demonstrate the importance of the service users voice. These will be complemented with student and nurses stories of care.

Sage hope this will be a fantastic resource for students and inspire them to become the best nurses they can be.
