ABOUT THIS BOOK
Austerity measures have substantially changed the landscape for social and health care in the United Kingdom. Fully updated to reflect key developments under the Coalition and subsequent governments, this third edition of Understanding Health and Social Care provides a current guide to the increasingly important partnership between health and social care workers. Jon Glasby combines practical information about welfare systems with key theoretical material to present a complete picture of these overlapping fields with respect to a range of adult service user groups. Drawing on user-focused case studies and reinforcing his lessons with reflective exercises and suggestions for further reading, he looks at key themes such as partnership working and integrated care, independent living and disability, discrimination, user involvement, and support for caregivers.
