Introduction to sociology for health carers

  Now in its second edition, An Introduction to Sociology for Health Carers provides an accessible grounding for all nursing and health care students who have little previous experience of studying Sociology but who, within their first year courses, need to quickly develop sociological thinking skills and knowledge that they can apply to their own care practice. As a discipline, Sociology focuses on how human lives are socially structured and organised, and on the ways in which everyday experiences are made meaningful – a crucial underpinning of health and social care theory and practice. This engaging text introduces basic sociological concepts and techniques and encourages all health care students to make the most of their experiences in the practice environment, learning from these, and becoming a reflective, sociologically-informed practitioner.
