Critical Thinking and Professional Judgement for Social Work

Critical Thinking and Professional Judgement for Social Work

Critical thinking as a process can appear formal and academic, far removed from everyday life where decisions have to be taken quickly in less than ideal conditions. However, now more than ever, it is seen as a vital part of social work, and indeed any healthcare and leadership practice within the current agenda for integration, and in the post Francis inquiry health care context. This Fourth Edition now reflects this wider arena, but also includes new material in response to the continuing review of social work professional standards. It continues to take a pragmatic look at the range of ideas associated with critical thinking, focusing on learning and development for practice. The chapter on professional judgement has been extended to provide a wider discussion on practical reasoning and judgement in relation to developing expertise, while other chapters and reading lists have also been updated, and activities revised to enhance learning. The authors continue to emphasise the importance of sound, moral judgement based on critical thinking and practical reasoning; while also acknowledging the tensions for staff and teams facing complex, uncertain situations and sometimes oppressive workplace cultures. Their hope is that increased and informed attention to your thinking can help nurture wise deliberation and action in such challenging times.

In a climate where many unsubstantiated claims are made, it is essential to have access to the best evidence-based knowledge on how to extend healthy life expectancy. Researchers, healthcare practitioners, and policy makers come together annually at the International Research Center for Healthy Ageing and Longevity to discuss, debate, and exchange ideas, and the proceedings of the most recent conference is contained in the chapters of this volume. Now, more than ever, a critical need exists for the development of appropriate policies so that aging is seen as a resource and not as an isolating and segregating experience. Solid research elucidating the processes of aging must be translated into strategies for clinical practice in order to respond to the needs of an aging population. The full spectrum of proven and potential aging interventions including pharmaceutical, nutritional, clinical, educational, policy, complementary, preventive, and restorative means were explored at this international meeting. The topics covered in this volume include the following: (1) Nutritional interventions in aging and age-associated disease, both diet and supplements; (2) dementia in an aging population; (3) the new caring -- financial and asset management and substitute decision-making by and for older people; (4) how we improve the quality of research into healthy aging; (5) promoting balance and preventing falls in an aging population; (6) population aging in developing countries; (7) promoting health and well-being of the older community; (8) hormone and metabolic interventions in aging; (9) community attitudes and approaches towards human life extension; (10) respecting the elders in our care; (11) the biology of healthy aging and longevity; (12) basic science and mechanisms of aging and longevity; (13) sustaining optimal aging -- inner strength and mutual support; (14) wellbeing, retirement planning and expectations of the baby-boomer generation; (15) natural and complementary approaches to age-associated disorders; (16) psychosocial predictors of healthy aging and longevity -- lessons from longitudinal studies; (17) healthy longevity -- lessons learned from the world's longest-lived people; (18) the aging brain; (19) baby-boomer work force participation; (20) quality of care and quality of life for the elderly; (21) frontiers of knowledge in biogerontology; (22) behavioural and social interventions for healthy aging and longevity.

The book introduces readers to research of different kinds - the randomised controlled trial, the survey, qualitative research and action research - and highlights the underlying logic and value of each. It also addresses economic appraisal, and ethical issues in research.

Fallacies in Medicine and Health

This textbook examines the ways in which arguments may be used and abused in medicine and health. The central claim is that a group of arguments known as the informal fallacies – including slippery slope arguments, fear appeal, and the argument from ignorance – undertake considerable work in medical and health contexts, and that they can in fact be rationally warranted ways of understanding complex topics, contrary to the views of many earlier philosophers and logicians. Modern medicine and healthcare require lay people to engage with increasingly complex decisions in areas such as immunization, lifestyle and dietary choices, and health screening. Many of the so-called fallacies of reasoning can also be viewed as cognitive heuristics or short-cuts which help individuals make decisions in these contexts. Using features such as learning objectives, case studies and end-of-unit questions, this textbook examines topical issues and debates in all areas of medicine and health, including antibiotic use and resistance, genetic engineering, euthanasia, addiction to prescription opioids, and the legalization of cannabis. It will be useful to students of critical thinking, reasoning, logic, argumentation, rhetoric, communication, health humanities, philosophy and linguistics.

Traditionally, the various professions concerned with health and social care have undertaken their training and subsequent studies without interprofessional collaboration. Increasingly these professions are considering an interdisciolinary approach as the most effective way to deliver quality client care. However how do they proceed with implementing such radical changes? this book, based on empirical research provides answers to many of the questions. The opinions of 1683 teachers and students from thirteen professions are presented overall and also in individual professional profiles. The curriculum for each of the partipating professions has been analysed and core subjects suitable for interdisciplinary learning identified, together with how and when integrarion should take place. This book should be valuable reading for all those involved or interested in the training of doctors, nurses, dentists, dental surgery assistants, dental hygienists, dental technologists, operating department practitioners, nutritionists and dietitians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, podiatrists, radiographers, speech therapists and social workers.
