Promotional Information

This is an excellent book. It gives practical examples of applications of the principles of ethics. It thus makes a sometimes dry, abstract topic come alive.' - Dorothy Adam, School of Nursing & Midwifery, Robert Gordon University, UK 'Very well written and clearly presented with relevant scenarios to aid understanding. One of the best books for nursing undergraduates on this subject that I have come across!' - Eleanor Jack, Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing, School of Health and Social Care, Bournemouth University, UK I really like this book as the content relates directly to practice, making the information appealing to practitioners in the various fields of healthcare.' - Carol Taylor, Programme Leade,r Department of Health Care Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK 'The scenarios and the practical application are a major strength of the text. Its interdisciplinary approach means that I would recommend this book to student nurses, paramedics, and assistant practitioners.' - Julie-Ann Hayes, Senior Lecturer in Law and Ethics, Liverpool John Moores University, UK 'Excellent book. Good application and facilitates learning.' - Tracey Barnfather, Division of Adult Nursing, University of Northampton, UK 'This is a must have for any first year student nurse. It is very readable, doesn't waffle, gives plenty of information and is easy to dip in and out of.' - Iffa Settle, Programme Leader, Department of Health and Social Care, York College, UK '... I teach ethical principles with midwifery students and this text can be applied to midwifery. I particularly like the case study examples given as these can be so useful in providing material for discussion and debate around ethical principles. The application to practice is vital.' - Judith Davies, Institute of Health and Society, University of Worcester , UK 'An easy to read and understand book. Ideal as an introduction to professional issues.' - Chris Moat, Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Science, School of Nursing, Teesside University, UK 'Underpinning the Foundation Degree is a clear understanding of Legal & Ethical Issues in Health and Social Care.

A must for all health and social care students.' - Tina Duffy, Lecturer, School of Health and Social Care, North West Regional College, UK 'Because this text has a lot of scenarios for the reader to consider that have been developed or taken from real practice they resonate with students. The students on my module are practising health professionals from a variety of backgrounds and thus the range of scenarios enables all students to consider issues from the perspective of their own practice.' - Kevin Power, School of Nursing and Midwifery, De Montfort University, UK 'a good text for students to draw upon in their professional studies modules at all levels and for utilising once qualified as occupational therapists.' - Liz Cade, Senior Lecturer, Department of Health Studies, Glyndwr University, UK 'A very easy read and informative. Up to date and well referenced' - Carol-Anne Westwell, Nursing Lecturer, School of Healthcare Sciences, Bangor University, UK
