A bold, original book that sheds new light on our understanding of the role courage plays in healthcare. Critically analysing both the positive and negative implications of the presence of courage in delivering care, the authors present literature, theory, and detailed examples from practice, including whistleblowers' own accounts of courage-demanding situations.
With a view to promoting better patient outcomes, well-being for practitioners, and support for those who feel compelled to ‘speak out’ and challenge bad practice, Courage in Healthcare is an invaluable resource for any healthcare practitioner working in the NHS today, a rallying call and a practical guide.
