Professor Annie Altschul

At the end of the 2001 the UK Centre was delighted to collaborate with the Department of Nursing Studies of the Univerisity of Edinburgh in a Festschrift to celebrate the contribution to nursing of Professor Annie Altschul. The papers of Professor Altschul that formed the central core of this celebration are now published for the first time on the UKCHN website. We also publish the celebratory papers offered at the event and a bibliography of Professor Altschul's work.
