Since publication of the first edition in 1996, this book has established itself as an essential text for occupational therapists. It offers an understanding of the law relating to their practice, but is written to be accessible for those who have no prior legal knowledge. The text provides valuable information for occupational therapists employed in health and social services, as well as the law relevant to private practitioners.
The book includes chapters on all the main client groups and presents the relevant specialist law. Students and teachers of occupational therapy will find the chapters on professional registration, education, training and research of particular interest.
The second edition also provides an introduction to the complex organisational and legal developments which impact the work of the occupational therapist, including: the Human Rights Act; the Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Act 2003; the concept of clinical governance and the role of the new Health Professions Council. It is a generous resource for the occupational therapy student, practitioner and service manager.
