Overview

Tonia Aiken's text takes a user-friendly, practical approach, and provides all the features nursing educators and students rely on for comprehensive legal and ethical advice. It includes chapters on risk management and conflict management, critical-thinking features, an emphasis on ethical issues, and examines the role of the nurse in the political process.

"After reading this, the healthcare professional will be better informed and prepared in dealing with legal issues. Educators will find this a useful tool for the classroom." -- Volume 26, No. 3, May/June 2004 issue of the Journal for Healthcare Quality.
