Henoch Schonlein Purpura – A 5-Year Review and Proposed Pathway

By Louise Watson, Amanda R. W. Richardson, Richard C. L. Holt, Caroline A. Jones and Michael W. Beresford

We are the first group to clinically assess, critically analyse and subsequently revise a nurse led monitoring pathway for this condition
