Many social workers, health care staff and teachers maintain high standards of professionalism, often in stressful and challenging circumstances. However, research also reveals instances where individual practitioners and managers, or whole organisations, fail to act lawfully, ethically and/or carefully. This book addresses just those instances by providing guidance on how to maintain accountable professionalism in tricky "what if?" situations. Dilemmas are explored using case studies and the mosaic of legal rules and regulatory body requirements for accountable professionalism are also laid out. The book will appeal to students and newly qualified practitioners in teaching, health and social work.

Review:

The book will appeal to those with supervisory and management responsibility and academics planning modules concerning law, ethics and professional practice. It presents scenarios, case studies and information that will help students and practitioners to gain the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills to be able to weigh up difficult dilemmas relating to health and social care practice, before deciding on how to act'

This book is a useful resource and provides an excellent bibliography of cases, procedural guidance and relevant research. Much of this material is very practical and could be easily adapted to develop a training intervention to raise awareness in the local context. It will be of use to those taking on challenging roles as ethical advisors or complaints assessors with the caveat of course that local knowledge is central to good management. (Liz Beddoe, Associate Professor of Social Work, School of Counselling, Human Services and Social Work, The University of Auckland)
