    Experience of nursing students with dyslexia on clinical placement - UK

    A review of the literature was conducted to explore the experience of nursing students with dyslexia while on clinical placement. Three main themes emerged, including risk to patient safety, disclosure of dyslexia and support for nursing students. The literature review highlights the lack of dyslexia awareness and understanding in the research and at the trusts at which nursing students are placed, and calls for further research in this area. (McPheat, C. (2014).  Nursing Standard. 28(41): 44-49 - 2014).
