A book that brings into sharp relief the major challenge facing
healthcare systems across the globe, workforce shortage. This book
could not have been written at more pertinent time ... beautifully
crafted and written. * Ibadete Fetahu, Nursing Times *
There is just so much to take away from [this book], it is well researched and written in an accessible format providing bite-sized chapters that can be easy to digest when needed ... This is a kind of Chicken Soup for the Soul book, inspirational and bringing stories of real lives to the pages associated with the global workforce. I can guarantee you will have a 'aha' moment and you be heard muttering to yourself 'that makes so much sense'. * Ian Peate, Independent Nurse *
