O'Ferrall, Fergus (2013) Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review, 102(407), pp. 324-335.

An overview of a crisis in caring occurring in Irish healthcare services. Nursing is both implicated and called upon to take the lead in reversing this crisis by re-focusing on and strengthening its traditional spiritually-oriented values of sensitivity, compassion and caring in all aspects of patient care. Implementing Careful Nursing is suggested as one way of achieving this.
