RETRACTED: Nursing role on preventing secondary brain injury
Accident and Emergency Nursing, Volume 12, Issue 2, April 2004, Pages 94-98

Reason: This paper has been retracted from the journal because it is believed that large portions of text have been copied directly from another article Prevention of Secondary Brain Injury written by F.H. Wong, published in Critical Care Nurse 20 (2000) 18–27.

A full investigation into the issue has been undertaken by the editor, in communication with the editor of Critical Care Nurse and the authors of the above article. The editor of Accident and Emergency Nursing apologizes to Mr Wong, and to Critical Care Nurse for this regrettable occurrence.
