This Second Edition is organised into four new parts, each with a part introduction pulling together the main themes:
" Part 1: People focuses on those who use and provide health and social care services
" Part 2: Places focuses on where care takes place
" Part 3: Approaches considers different ways through which care takes places
" Part 4: Ideas focuses on the ideas and policies that underpin care provision
Full of real practice scenarios and examples, the book successfully makes the links between theory and practice, and will be an essential resource for all students studying at undergraduate level across the wide spectrum of health and social care.
This is a good text for level 4 undergraduates to explore health and social care via anecdotal evidence.
Easy read, very useful
This book will help students to understand the basics of health and social care and along with other books will help them to get through the course
I found the chapters to be too brief to be of use for undergraduate teaching
This books offers teachers an opportunity to present a solid base of knowledge form which all levels of Health and Social care can be taught and understood. Covering theorists, A vast array of case studies throughout this book provides numerous opportunities to continually link theory to practice in the form of discussion, independent study tasks or classroom activities.
A hard text book to readn and digest at Level 4 - will support the Level 5 HND programme better
This is a very useful book that will help HNC Health and Social care students to contextualise the issues discussed
This is an essential reader not only for the working with carers module, but the health and social care course as a whole. It might, however, benefit from some updates to draw on more recent research.
Excellent book as a reader . Recommended for level 4 Health and Social care.Contains key elements of the HND.
A fab book, exciting and innovative ideas
