During late 2014 and early 2015 the Nursing Standard published a series of five articles written by Dr Iain Atherton and Dr Richard Kyle on how insights from the social sciences, and specifically the concept of biogeography drawn from geographical thought, can enhance nursing practice and education by cultivating spirits of empathy, engagement and enquiry.
