    Hi all and merry xmas and a happy new year to you all.

    I am just writing my 1st main assignment for uni and was wondering if anyone could help me in how to reference things such as the NMC code and also trust guidelines from a particular trust. The guidelines are for the use of an interpreter. I am doing a reflective account on communication and my scenario is regarding a women with little english vocabulary.

    If anyone knows of any good references i could use too that would be great, as i dont know whether its all the festive cheer, but my mind is dead!!

    Many thanks in advance. xxxx

    Hiya,

    I just reference the NMC as Nursing & Midwifery Council (year) Name of Publication NMC London

    e.g. the reference for the Code of Conduct would be:-
    Nursing & Midwifery Council (2008) The Code: Standards of conduct, performance and ethics for nurses and midwives NMC London

    With Trust guidelines, I'd check with your uni, as I know that each uni likes this done differently. At ours, we're not allowed to mention the name of our trust at all in assignments so any guidelines just have to be referenced as Trust Guideline (year) etc.

    Hope that helps. I'll have a look around and see if I can find any useful references for you. Good luck with the assignment! xx
