Description : Ethics and Law for the Health Professions is a cross-disciplinary medico-legal book, the first edition of which was widely used in the medical world. We believe it is also of immense use to the legal world when grappling with medico-legal issues. Its special features are its focus on a clinically-relevant approach and its recognition that health care professionals are often confronted with legal and ethical issues simultaneously. Health professionals have to satisfy both, and their legal advisers need to be aware of the dilemmas this can present. This book is careful to distinguish between ethics and law. Its chapters take account of all the health professions and their differing responsibilities, and the book covers a very wide range of the issues they face.

Description : Derived from the renowned multi-volume International Encyclopaedia of Laws, this convenient volume provides comprehensive analysis of the law affecting the physician-patient relationship in Ireland. Cutting across the traditional compartments with which lawyers are familiar, medical law is concerned with issues arising from this relationship, and not with the many wider juridical relations involved in the broader field of health care law. After a general introduction, the book systematically describes law related to the medical profession, proceeding from training, licensing, and other aspects of access to the profession, through disciplinary and professional liability and medical ethics considerations and quality assurance, to such aspects of the physician-patient relationship as rights and duties of physicians and patients, consent, privacy, and access to medical records. Also covered are specific issues such as organ transplants, human medical research, abortion, and euthanasia, as well as matters dealing with the physician in relation to other health care providers, health care insurance, and the health care system. Succinct and practical, this book will prove to be of great value to professional organizations of physicians, nurses, hospitals, and relevant government agencies. Lawyers representing parties with interests in Ireland will welcome this very useful guide, and academics and researchers will appreciate its comparative value as a contribution to the study of medical law in the international context.

Description : Ethics underpin all aspects of nursing activity but the concepts can often seem remote or inaccessible. This refreshing new book will help nurses explore and explain key aspects of ethical nursing practice in a practical and engaging way. Using plentiful examples and case studies, this book focuses on showing readers how to apply ethical principles to everyday nursing practice and deliver excellent care as a result. The book explores and helps answer questions such as:What are rights?What is dignity?How are nurses accountable?How does the law relate to ethics?What is a dignified death?The authors have created a set of fictional characters who experience various healthcare dilemmas and scenarios, and appear throughout the book. These characters help illustrate different aspects of ethics in healthcare and bring ethical concepts and decision making to life. This book is essential reading for nurses preparing to qualify or those already qualified and doing further study. "This is an ideal introductory text for students of nursing and other allied health professions because it is written in an accessible style. The authors discuss key ethical theories and principles but make them meaningful by applying them to contemporary scenarios in healthcare. They encourage the reader to examine their own beliefs and values and consider how these can impact on their own professional judgment and decision making." Melanie Fisher LLM (Medical Law), Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Northumbria University, UK "This is a very readable textbook that deals with the fundamentals of healthcare ethics for nurses. Starting with an introduction to the issues underpinning ethical knowledge, such as values and beliefs, it then leads into ethical concepts such as rights, dignity and accountability and concludes with specific areas of practice, such as dignified death and research. As such it would be useful reading to support an undergraduate programme introducing students to ethical theory. The use of '"think boxes'" and short exercises is particularly useful in ensuring that theory can be contextualised and made sense of by the student in real-life scenarios. Academic staff may find these useful as activities to use in workshops with students." Deborah C. Casey, Senior Lecturer in Nursing, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK "I believe strongly that there needs to be much greater understanding of moral nursing practice particularly at a time when there has been much negative press regarding poor and undignified patient care, along with a failure by nurses to advocate for the frail and vulnerable. Education requires appropriate materials to enable those learning about nursing and health care. This text succeeds in providing clear explanations of ethics for nurses in relatively plain English that will enable the essentials of moral caring behaviour. The reader is encouraged to engage with ethical concepts and principles through ‘think boxes’, ‘points for consideration’ and the ‘residents of Oak Avenue’ that facilitate linking theory to practice. Overall the reader is guided from one subject to the next through each chapter in a logical manner that gives a useful perspective to understanding the essentials for moral nursing practice." Linnette King, Principal Lecturer, Faculty of Health and Social Science, University of Brighton, UK

Description : This text is an accessible and clinically practical guide to medicines management in mental health for all student nurses and professionals. Making the topic manageable and understandable at undergraduate nurse level, it also encourages a growing understanding beyond this in professional practice too. A wide range of mental health conditions are covered, along with how medication can be used to manage these conditions, how the drugs work and how they should be given. Exploring the legal aspects and ethical issues around medication management in mental health, it also discusses other concepts such as medicines adherence and the therapeutic alliance. The book uses straight-forward language to help the reader master the key concepts and how to apply them to clinical practice. It features: • Drug calculations and multiple choice questions to help you assess your learning • Key learning points to sum up each chapter • Patient case studies across a range of mental health disorders • References and suggested reading to help take your knowledge and learning further The book places an emphasis on applying underpinning pharmacological principles to clinical practice and is useful to all nurses who work with patients who have a mental health disorder. “A knowledge and understanding of medicines and medication management is a fundamental aspect of the role of the mental health nurse. The author succeeds in her aim of providing of both a basic knowledge of the subject area, and an understanding of how the principles of psychopharmacology and medicines management are applied to clinical practice and the role of the nurse. The book has an excellent structure, each chapter beginning with clear learning objectives, and ending with a summary of key learning points; multiple choice questions, and a case study, where relevant. The text is written in an accessible style; specific chapters, for example, chapter 5 “Anatomy and physiology of the brain”, having clear diagrams that facilitate the reader’s ability to understand both basic physiology, and the principles of neurotransmission, etc. The role of the therapeutic alliance is helpfully acknowledged when promoting adherence and concordance, whilst the key medications prescribed for the specified disorders, and the associated psychopharmacology, are clearly described. "I would consider the publication as being essential reading for any undergraduate mental health nurse; the text also being a valuable learning resource in the development of curriculum content.” Mark James, Senior Lecturer in Community Mental Health Nursing, University of South Wales, UK “I’m delighted to recommend this new, welcome and accessible resource: an excellent book with much to offer student and registered mental health nurses and nurse educators, in promoting safe and effective practice in medicines management. With an easy to understand style, Deborah Robertson provides a helpful overview of the legal and professional context, a practical introduction to undertaking drug calculations, and considers the complex issues around practical strategies for optimising adherence and patient outcomes. Complementing recommended non-pharmacological interventions for well-known mental health disorders, this book offers a refreshing perspective and special focus upon pharmacological treatment options, clearly explaining the use of specific medications, their main modes of action, effects and side effects, and recommendations for monitoring outcomes. In particular, this book offers the reader a very good grounding in understanding the pathophysiology and pharmacological treatment of mental health disorders, providing materials and highlighting further resources for use when working with the patient or service user, whether providing education, involving them in decision-making about medication taking, or actively monitoring outcomes. Another valuable feature is that the reader is encouraged to consolidate their learning through a series of reflective case studies that focus upon recognising need and treatment planning, and end of chapter multiple choice and numeracy questions.” John Butler Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, University of Central Lancashire, UK “This book comprehensively addresses all the major psychotropic drugs a mental health nurse will encounter when undertaking medicines interventions. Each mental health diagnosis is explored and the related prescribed medicines covered in depth. I would recommend this book for use as a core text book in undergraduate studies, registered nurses who want to increase their knowledge base and for non-medical prescribing students as a baseline source to learn about the psychopharmacology of drugs they will prescribe.” Steve Hemingway, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health, The University of Huddersfield, UK
