Clinical Appraisal

Synopsis

The impetus for this show has come out of my desire to share the translational science and clinical practice of nursing and health promotion with those interested. Some episodes will be primarily opinion pieces, while the vast majority will set out to deconstruct a scholarly nursing or related biomedical paper and pull some relevant piece of practice changing knowledge from it. Ultimately, my goal is to promote continual learning and self-development.
