Very interested in the introduction of intentional rounding and the evidence base for it. Would there be any chance of speaking/emailing with you on a personal level ?

I am assisting my partner writing an essay on intentional ward rounding and it appears that the Paul Snelling article reports that the evidence base for this procedure is poor. Are there any quality studies that demonstrate the intentional rounding is based on good quality evidence?
