Professional Accountability in Social Care and Health : Challenging Unacceptable Practice and Its Management Paperback
Part of the Creating Integrated Services Series series
Many social workers, health care staff and teachers maintain high standards of professionalism, often in stressful and challenging circumstances.
However, research also reveals instances where individual practitioners and managers, or whole organisations, fail to act lawfully, ethically and/or carefully.
This book addresses just those instances by providing guidance on how to maintain accountable professionalism in tricky "what if?" situations.
Dilemmas are explored using case studies and the mosaic of legal rules and regulatory body requirements for accountable professionalism are also laid out.
The book will appeal to students and newly qualified practitioners in teaching, health and social work and their managers.
