The author has also included: - full evidence descriptors for each of the 12 ECM Standards in table format, aligned with the relevant ECM outcomes; - useful summary checklists; - an accompanying CD full of downloadable material, including an improvement planning and self-evaluation framework and a Power-Point presentation.
