Overview

How do health and social care professionals learn their practice? What can the professions learn from each other? This book offers a comprehensively written account of the recent organizational and conceptual changes in UK practice education. Using case examples, the authors focus on the experiences of students' learning in practice settings: how this is organized, what methods are used to help students learn their trade and how their abilities are assessed. The book offers separate chapters on nine professions, all by authors well-established in writing about practice-based learning in their field. They present an exploration in areas of similarity and difference in expertise and outlook between professions, whilst introducing the general concepts that translate between professions. This book will be of great interest to academics and professional in the fields of health studies and social work.
