About this book


The skill of interaction is the main theme of this book. Experienced nurses all say that caring for someone involves doing things for, and being able to relate to, that person. This book looks at the use of the model in modern nursing practice, and shows how the building of the nurse-patient interpersonal relationship is in itself an essential professional skill.
