Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Reader lays solid foundations for continuing professional development in the rapidly changing world of health and social care.

A series of ley articles explores current challenges facing practitioners across a broad spectrum of the caring professions, including:

- the need for accountability to service users, funders of services and local communities

- the required skills for teamwork and collaboration, anti-discriminatory practice and patient and client participation

- ethical dilemmas of working in conditions of resource constraint and engaging in questions of quality and performance review.

A thorough and critical analysis of these increasingly important themes, this book covers organizational issues, the social and economic context of policy, and the need for reflective practice. The chapters illustrate the similarities and differences between the NHS and social services.

Selected to appeal to a wide audience of students and practitioners, these readings provide an in-depth understanding of the context of professional practice in health and social care.

It will be an essential resource for students and practitioners in health studies, nursing, social work and allied professions.
