From the Back Cover:

As a healthcare practitioner, you will face a broad range of professional
dilemmas in your everyday practice. From seeking consent to upholding
patient confidentiality, you'll rely on your knowledge of ethics, the law
and professional codes of conduct to guide your actions. Balancing these
three strands can be difficult, but with detailed scenarios and accessible
discussion, this book guides you through the complexities of practice.

Taking a practice-based approach, the text explores the combination of
ethical, legal and professional issues which characterise the field of
healthcare. A range of experienced contributors come together to
provide:
? detailed analysis of confidentiality, accountability, consent, capacity
and justice, all grounded within the daily practice context;
? authoritative guidance through discussion of legal cases, excerpts
from statutes and extracts from professional guidelines;
? realistic scenarios drawn from a range of health settings, unravelling
and illustrating the guidelines, statutes and policies which influence
practice;
? advice on balancing the conflicting pressures of the modern healthcare
context, from facing time limitations to challenging the unprofessional
practice of others.

Ethics, Law and Professional Issues puts you at the centre of some of a
practitioner's most difficult decisions. It is therefore an essential resource
for any student of healthcare looking to develop an ethically, legally
and professionally sound approach to practice.
