Professional values in healthcare are in a state of constant and increasingly rapid change. While all professions now emphasise teamwork and collegiality in practice, fewer are inclined to consider shared or differing values across professions.

This interdisciplinary volume explains how health care professions and their values have changed over the last forty years, charting where they have come from, where they are now, and how they might develop in the future. There is coverage of a wide range of different professions within healthcare, from GPs, mental health nurses, adult nurses and pharmacists, to NHS managers and chaplains. Chapters are followed by critical responses from senior healthcare practitioners.


This original and insightful book will be a valuable resource for academics, researchers, senior healthcare professionals and healthcare managers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
There are twelve chapters in all including introductory and final concluding chapters by the editors which "top and tail" the collection of contributions nicely. The majority of these chapters have selected discussants'' responses which in the main are refreshingly critical. The chapters cover a range of disciplines and health service specialism (medicine, genetic counselling, pharmacy, management, nursing) some of which have been much neglected in academic writing. -- Sociology of Health & Illness
...this book will be valuable to nurses who are interested in professional ethics, particularly those who work in the UK NHS. -- Nursing Ethics
