Recenzii

"This book is easy to read and navigate. The structure of the book leads the reader to be challenged into finding out more information and thinking about how this information can be used in practice. The chapters are presented in a clear way with a similar layout throughout all sections that enables the readers to find areas of interest quickly. While most of the subject matter is not new, this book pulls it together into a handy textbook that is very informative and will benefit those undertaking their Care Certificate and any health and social care assistant to really explore the fundamentals of their role and constantly improve their practice to ensure high–quality care is given." (BJHCA March 2017)
