We have loads of new items for you in this month's New Books List. Many are replacing old editions in line with our recent stock revision push, but there are brand new titles too.
New nursing titles include What makes a good nurse? - Why the virtues are important for nurses and Inflammatory bowel disease nursing.
To assist in workplace effectiveness we have Managing professionals, while critical care workers will find Law and ethics in intensive care of great support in decison-making.
And the thought-provoking The plot against the NHS should be of interest to all who work within the service.
