    Here is a paragraph that a student wrote paraphrasing information contained in a journal article:     In a recent study, a group of community health nurses in Sheffield held 50-minute instructional sessions for parents on how to recognize and respond to symptoms of hypoglycemia in their pre-school-aged children. A short questionnaire (5 questions) was administered before and after the sessions to measure parents’ feelings of confidence. An overwhelming majority of parents (89.6%) reported feeling much more confident in dealing with their children’s hypoglycemia after attending the session.    The information came from p.460 of this article:   McGrath, Kristin; Bianco, Linda A.  Effective nurse-patient communication in diabetes.
