Additional Book Details

What is personal judgement? How can it help me interpret and follow official guidelines? How can I use it successfully in my daily practice?

Rules and codes for healthcare professionals continue to proliferate yet are unable to offer practical advice in specific circumstances. To help balance official rules with the variable, unique human element, David Seedhouse and Vanessa Peutherer explain what personal judgement is and how it can be applied routinely and effectively in everyday decision-making in healthcare.

Through the use of over 40 interactive scenarios drawn from real-life practice, the authors encourage you to use a range of techniques to boost your personal judgement, introducing different models and approaches to decision-making and exploring their strengths as well as their limitations. The authors then talk you through their own suggestions for solving commonplace but challenging healthcare problems.
