Did you know that an estimated 12% of nurses leave the profession annually because of back injuries and that over half of RNs complain of chronic back pain?

You will come away from reading this book with information that you can employ in a variety of work environments--hospitals, nursing homes, home care, and other health care organizations--whatever your practice setting may be.
