Review: "The learning of clinical skills is an important part of health professional education and often one of the most stressful and confusing elements of the student journey. A Guide to Clinical Skills for Health Students is designed as an interprofessional companion text for students in Aotearoa New Zealand studying across a range of clinical health degrees. The book provides guidelines for clinical skills based on key principles and currently documented practice, and emphasises the need for practitioners to appreciate the key concepts in order to be able to adapt and respond to evolving protocols and situations. It presents supporting information about relevant practice, identifies references to guide further learning, and provides tools for recording clinical learning and professional development." - Publisher information
