This work discusses a range of topics relevant to contemporary practice and how this sits within health and social care systems. The style of writing is to engage the reader in thoughtful application of information to their own practice and knowledge base. Information is introduced and developed from the perspectives of the individual practitioner, the professional dimensions and finally organisational implications. Topics are grouped into 4 broad sections that examine the context of practice, professionalism, the modernisation and legal agenda and finally practical steps into professional practice. Contributors have been mindful of the current political changes and devolution in the UK and have written in the context of an ever changing dynamic agenda in these influential areas for allied health professionals.
