Cutting across the division between health care and social care, the book links policy to practice, juxtaposing the voices of a range of careers and service users wih insights from academic debate and research. The reader is divided into five sections, focusing on: the experience of caring or being cared for; the environments in which care takes place; the ways in which care has been conceptualized; issues of abuse in care setting; and the political context of care. Published as a set book for the Open University course: Health and Social Care (K100).
