"Professional Perspectives in Health Care" covers a broad range of professional healthcare issues such as confidentiality, the patient as consumer and interprofessional working. Illustrated with case studies throughout, it examines the latest developments and international perspectives on working in healthcare, and encourages a critical appreciation of current debates on the professional agenda. It will be invaluable for those students interested in examining the policy and professional contexts of health work.
