What people are saying about the Clinician's Guide to PPS
This is a first rate book...a fabulous orientation tool for new clinicians to home care and an excellent review for experienced clinicians. The authors have taken difficult material, including a whole new vocabulary and made it understandable. The organization allows the reader to choose sections most useful to them without reading from cover to cover — a positive quality in today's hectic home care environment.
