schema:reviewBody"'The new edition of the reader 'Understanding Health and Social Care' combines classic works with newly commissioned material, offering readers unparalleled coverage of the key issues in health and social care. The breadth of material encompasses voices of service users, professional and lay carers, as well as academics and researchers. This Second Edition is organised into four new parts, each with a part introduction pulling together the main themes: Part 1: People focuses on those who use and provide health and social care services; Part 2: Places focuses on where care takes place; Part 3: Approaches considers different ways through which care takes places; Part 4: Ideas focuses on the ideas and policies that underpin care provision. Full of real practice scenarios and examples, the book successfully makes the links between theory and practice, and will be an essential resource for all students studying at undergraduate level across the wide spectrum of health and social care." -- Publisher's website."
