About the book:
Authors: Janet Miller;
Publisher: Hodder Education;
Size: 5 Mb;
In this fourth edition of Care in Practice, perhaps even more than in the first three editions, it is the involvement of contributors that absolutely make the book, enhance its content, provide up-to-date information on a wide range of topics.
The chapters of this hook have been written for those who are starting out on a career or course in care, or for those who wish to further their knowledge and skills in this and relater areas.
This book is a revision of the third edition of Care in Practice. There have been quite a few changes made.
There is much new material, but where the material presented in the previous edition still applies arid cannot be better stated, it is included here. This includes material preparer by other authors, who are listed in the Acknowledgements.
