'...excellent layout and presentation, especially the way the text is broken up into boxes to highlight common themes throughout each chapter, such as learning outcomes for reflective sessions and case study narratives. Each chapter is also rounded off with a summary, discussion points, learning activities and recommended reading, which helps the reader to draw conclusions at each stage to consolidate learning...there is much learning to be gained from the insightful reflections of a wider, multidisciplinary body of students' - Nursing Standard

'This book explores important professionalism dilemmas, including patient safety errors, consent and confidentiality ... The chapters include thought-provoking narratives on personal incidents and case studies that clearly link theory with practice. Detailed referencing provides an evidence-based, robust approach to tackling professionalism dilemmas.' - Surgeons' News, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh

"This book presents a valuable and realistic structure for teaching and learning how to become and develop as professional in any healthcare discipline. The usefulness of this book lies in the approach to guiding and developing the student's professional identify and the educator's teaching strategies to promote corrective actions based on reflections shaped by professional dilemmas founded on failures of professionals in various healthcare disciplines" Linda S. Hansen, MSN, RN, Michigan State University College of Nursing on behalf of Doody's Aug 17

'The key strength of this book is that it continually links the theory of professionalism to the reality of day-to-day practice ... the authors do an excellent job of exposing the commonalities and differences in the perspectives of the various health care professions.' Anesthesia and Analgesia
