Overview

Social Policy for Nurses and the Caring Professions is one of a series of texts which provide coherent and multi-disciplinary support for all professional groups involved in the provision of health and social care. It provides the student with a lively, readable and well illustrated introduction to social policy. The authors take as a starting point the importance of the conceptual connection between health and illness. The stress throughout the book is on the significance of social policy in preventing ill health and disability as well as supporting the sick and disabled. A broad approach to social policy is taken, and the text is organized around the provision of welfare in the following contexts: public, private, voluntary, and informal. Consideration is given to competing ideologies of welfare and the development of welfare as well as contemporary provision. Social Policy for Nurses and the Caring Professions is based on the authors' first-hand teaching and research experience. The text has been carefully designed with the student in mind: a comprehensive reference list is provided at the end of the book, together with a glossary of important terms. The text is illustrated with tables and graphs throughout, and there are suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter. Social Policy for Nurses and the Caring Professions is a key textbook for all students undertaking diploma or degree level courses in nursing, health and social care.

Development of a welfare state, health inequalities & state health policies, privatization & social welfare, etc.
