Nursing Law and Ethics takes an innovative and challenging approach to key legal and ethical issues, and considers the practical application of law and ethics in nursing. Part 1 explores the interface between law, ethics and nursing, patient complaints and the changing policy context. Part 2 addresses legal and ethical perspectives on more specialist topics including negligence, consent, resource allocation, mental health nursing, the critically ill patient, clinical governance and research.

The new edition reflects recent changes in mental health and learning disabilities, as well as the implementation of the new clinical negligence and complaints system.
