Study Skills for Health and Social Care Students" will help students to build up their confidence through developing the key skills required for both academic study and clinical practice. Claire Craig introduces all the skills necessary to bridge the gap between study and practice, with a strong focus on the contextualisation of skills and their transferability to the clinical setting. Fundamental skills and principles for researching, processing information and for communicating and expressing findings are all covered, along with practical advice on: organising your learning; accessing support; recording ideas and information; expressing ideas in writing; and, working with others. The guidance provided here will be invaluable for students and professionals in the health sciences, including social care, social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy and nursing.
