The 2nd Edition of Law and Ethics in Nursing and Healthcare is an excellent introductory text for students from a range of disciplines not just nursing. The content provides a detailed exploration of the key legal and ethical issues relevant to contemporary healthcare practice. The text enables students to gain the necessary legal and ethical knowledge which underpins the development of professional competencies relating to professional conduct, standards of practice, maintaining confidentiality, gaining consent, mental capacity, and best interest decision making.

An excellent book, which comprehensively covers all aspects of law and ethics in easy to 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. It clarifies many issues that those working in Healthcare face. -- Ibadete Fetahu
