Professionalism in Mental Healthcare : Experts, Expertise and Expectations, Paperback / softback Book

Professionalism in Mental Healthcare : Experts, Expertise and Expectations Paperback / softback

Edited by Dinesh (Institute of Psychiatry, London) Bhugra, Amit Malik


In mental health, as in other medical disciplines, the role of the professional is changing.

The availability of information, enhanced roles of other healthcare professionals and changes in training have altered the doctor-patient relationship and left professionals accountable to the needs of clients, politicians, policy makers and funding agencies.

This book seeks to redefine the professional role of the specialist mental health worker by bringing perspectives from leading experts from both developed and developing countries, and also from a wide range of professionals in the field of law, medical ethics, education and medical leadership.

Uniquely, it also looks at the views of patients and next-generation psychiatrists.

It will be of interest to those involved in providing mental healthcare as well as those responsible for health policy initiatives and training.
