Having previously authored a number of papers(McCollum and Rogers, 2013; Rogers, 2018) about the importance of numeracy skills for nursing students and as the author of a succesful numeracy textbooks for nursing I was invited by a freelance journlist to give an Expert Opinion on the subject as part of an article he was writing for a numeracy themed issue of the NS.  

In the interview I discussed the fundamental principle of patient safety that underpins the importance of good numeracy skills throughout the nursing profession.
