From September 2016, we are introducing ASK4Books to 1st year nursing students, to promote an inclusive and equitable approach to teaching our diverse student population. This is a set of activities, centred around reading novels/biographies related to health and social care. ASK4Books will help to orientate students to the complex nature of healthcare settings, raise awareness of groups with protected characteristics within healthcare contexts and promote development of academic skills.
