Product Description

Review

"This is an informative and thought–provoking book." Journal of Advanced Nursing on the first Edition

From the Back Cover

This valuable book is distinctive in that it deals with both law and ethics. There is both practical and academic value in knowing ′what the law requires′ and ′ what is right′, and in understanding that these two are not always the same.

p>This second edition builds upon the strengths of the first. The interface between law, ethics and nursing is explored in the first part of the book as are patient complaints and the changing policy context of nursing law. The chapters in Part 2 contain both legal and ethical perspectives on more specialist topics including negligence, consent, resource allocation, mental health nursing, the critically ill patient, clinical governance and research.

I've used this text as part of an Ethics & Legal Issues Module within my BSc Nursing Studies and, having read some very 'heavy' texts trying to understand and comprehend many of the complex issues, it has been a relief to find a text that is written in 'English' - if you know what I mean!!
The editors have formatted the information so that it is much simpler to follow and the topics are covered in sufficient detail to ensure that all the relevent (for my course) issues are covered and explained in language that is understandable by any undergraduate student.
The book is well laid out and I would recommend it to anyone who has a similar module on a similar course. I was loathe to purchase texts, but this one was well worth the money.
