    Can Nursing Survive? A View Through the Keyhole.David Skidmore - 1994 - Nursing Ethics 1 (4):193-199.

This paper describes a study designed to investigate this assertion empirically. Questionnaires were administered to a crosssection of teachers in five English secondary schools which belonged to a consortium dedicated to the development of special educational needs provision. On each of four different dimensions, teachers were asked to rank (...)
