Illustrating clearly how legal and ethical principles interplay and inform professional development, Graham Avery focuses directly on the vital areas such as negligence, consent, confidentiality, and professional conduct - that healthcare students and practitioners need to understand in order to practice safely and ethically.Adopting a very practical, accessible approach, central themes and arguments are highlighted with real and fictional case studies which will help readers connect the often dry topics of law and ethics to their own work with patients.
