Critical Thinking in Health and Social Care

by Stella Jones-Devitt, Liz Smith

Critical Thinking in Health and Social Care Synopsis

`This book will serve well a diverse audience - in policy formulation and practice determination at all levels - who are committed to the nation's health and well-being' - Dianne Willcocks, Vice Chancellor, York St John University Critical Thinking in Health & Social Care is designed to equip practitioners with the knowledge and tools they need to critically examine practice in their own workplace. The book presents a range of different approaches, which have particular relevance in the context of health and social care. Each approach is explained and grounded in practice using case studies, problem-solving scenarios and workplace examples. The practical tools which form the core of the book are contextualised by an exploration of what constitutes knowledge and evidence and the types of assumptions which are commonly held and which have a bearing on practice. This is an essential text for advanced post-graduate health and social care students, and for those who are moving into more senior and strategic roles. Critical Thinking in Health & Social Care provides an array of tools which can be used to challenge and change existing practice and to solve problems. Stella Jones-Devitt is Head of Subject for Health Studies and Community Engagement at York St John University. Liz Smith is Programme Leader for Health Professional Studies, Faculty of Health and Social Care, University of Hull
