Title: Law and ethics in nursing and healthcare (2nd edition) – An introduction

Author: Graham Avery

Publisher: Sage Publishing

Reviewer: Debbie Quinn, Queens Nurse, freelance consultant and bank palliative care nurse

What was it like?

An introduction to law and ethics in current practice

What were the highlights?

An excellent book, which comprehensively covers all aspects of law and ethics in easy read chapters. Certainly a book you can pick up and use when needed. It covers up-to-date information including the Francis Report and the Health and Social Care Act of 2012. Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards has also been added to this edition. I have learnt much useful information and tips from its content.

Strengths & weaknesses:

Each chapter has real-life case studies to assist with understanding and learning. It enables critical thinking. The chapters are well written with scenarios at the end of each one for readers to reflect on their knowledge and understanding. The appendix section offers suggested answers to the scenarios to assist this further. It clarifies many issues that those working in Healthcare face. Well written it assists the reader to truly begin to understand the law far better than before.

Potential readers:

Students and qualified staff would find this relevant; particularly those who wish to explore the law and ethical arena.
