This book aims to provide nursing students and new nurses with a greater understanding of how to manage patient safety and risk in their own practice. The book focuses on the essentials that students and nurses need to know, and therefore provides a clear pathway through what can sometimes seem an overwhelmingly complex mass of rules, procedures and possible options.
