This comprehensive survey of health and social care offers a coherent account of the contemporary realities of service organization and delivery - and a vision for the future. In bringing together discussion of political and policy contexts, approaches and practice skills, Knowledge, Skills & Values for Health & Social Care foregrounds the importance of critical awareness and of flexible, holistic practice in addressing patients’ and service users’ increasingly complex needs. This is an integrated account of health and social care which, rather than emphasizing traditions of role and function, starts from a commitment to well-being and to better health and better care. It puts reflective, values-based and research-informed practice at the heart of its explanation of a fast-changing field.
