These include inter–professional relationships, team work, ethical and legal issues, governance and patient safety.

A really good addition to my book collection! Informative and very easy to follow. I have found this book invaluable to my studies so far and take it with me to both work and university. Its based on UK practise which I found helpful as I have bought books from Amazon before and realised too late that they were all based on American practice. A definite must have. ––N.
