"This text is authoritative and the best example of informing nurses in a complex practice area. Examples of case law, statutes and scenarios are invaluable in bringing each chapter alive. Brilliant!" (Lecturer, University of Wolverhampton.)
'The authors examine professional issues from a practical, legal and ethical perspective throughout this book. The lay out and spacing in each chapter along with the interspersed activities allows
Easy to read with good use of case studies /scenarios to evoke an enquiring mind around the challanges of principle based decison making in nursing . Highly recommend as a useful ,and clear text for students studying ethics and law in nursing , for the first time .
This is one of the textbooks that I recommended to all students on law and professional values' module. It is comprehensive and organised in way that allows our degree students to easily understand the subjects.
This text clearly addresses the ethical and legal issues that nurse's have to address on a regular basis. The effective use of case studies and activities helps keep the reader fully engaged with all the issues raised.
This book is great, easy to follow and ideal for my module on Human Rights and Ethics
This book provides the student with excellent knowledge and examples into the issues that mayt arise within professional practice. The text is well defined and easy to follow, continues to be used as recommended reading for pre-registration nursing course.
This textbook is very good but in to much much detail for my first year unit but i have passed it onto a collegue teaching our third year students.
Students are required at the start of the course to consider the range of legal and professional aspects of nursing practice. This book is clearly written and suitable for use throughout their nursing practice.
This text serves as a good introductory text for students as they begin to grasp the concept of accountability within the nursing profession. The text is informative without being intimidating as students can sometimes become overwhelmed as they begin to understand professionalism, the role of the nurse and the law, and accountability.
Good Text that covers the subject well.
a valuable contribution to the law in professional practice for all nurses to read
this is a very good book for health professionals already trained or expereinced nurses or ward managers. it is a little indepth for student nurses in their first year for a nursing course. the examples and scenarios are excellent and assist you to think about your own practice. very enjoyable read and found this informative and enhanced by knowledge and skills
Easy to use wide selection of relevant case studies. Content did prompt some vocal discussion. would recommend.
The perfect text for pre-registration students, easy to follow and easy to refer to
A very useful text which provides many examples of ethical and legal dilemmas and relates them to practice. Good, clear discussions of ethics and law related to professional values. An ideal introduction for first year students and to carry them through the rest of their degree.
More suitable for pre- registration nursing rather than post registration as text covers the basics rather than enhanced practice skills
The chapter on concent is recommended in my module about preparing the patient for surgery.
At last! - an accessible text on this aspect for all nursing students, particularly those on an undergraduate programme. Concise and relevant for practice.
Straightforward text should help with practice and essay writing.
passed onto nursing colleagues of which the text has more relevance
