In a revised and expanded version of this popular title, Bridgit Dimond provides an essential reference for physiotherapists, covering both conventional and specialist legal situations in reader-friendly terms. Legal Aspects of Physiotherapy contains brand new clinical case studies that guide the reader informatively through a cornucopia of legal issues that may arise in the practice of physiotherapy. Reading this book, practitioners will develop the knowledge and awareness to deal confidently with the implications of legal scenarios, arming them with the knowledge to protect both clients and themselves.

This latest edition contains important information on each of the many and extensive changes in practice law, the NHS and professional regulation to have occurred in the last decade. Topics covered include the rights of clients, employment issues across state and private practice, professional accountability and specialist client groups.
