Summary
"Thorough knowledge and understanding of the law are crucial to effective professional practice in social work and social care." "This text adopts a case-study approach in order to bridge the gap between knowledge and the realities of practice. Putting the needs of vulnerable adults centre stage, each chapter starts with the kind of real-life situation that the caring professions often face and identifies the important factors relating to social welfare legislation. The authors examine the general principles of applying social care law in practice, the practical issues involved in assessing community care needs, advocacy and the protection of vulnerable adults."--BOOK JACKET
