"Newly updated, this textbook provides a commentary on the areas of the law of interest to nurses.

Headings and questions with associated answers help the reader understand the principles being put forward. It is well referenced, chapter by chapter, and has suggestions for further reading.

This would be a useful first book for studying legal or professional issues in nursing. It is also recommended for those who have an understanding of the law and want to see how recent changes, for example, the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act, are affecting professional practice."
