An edited volume with an international spectrum of contributors that places risk and resilience in health and social care in context. The chapters explore the issues of risk and resilience in health and social care, issues fundamental to some of the most complex decision making required by society, services, practitioners and members of the public. They look at issues of risk and resilience across the age spectrum, from children and young people to older adults. Three underpinning concepts are examined: location of responsibility and risk expertise; human rights and citizenship; agency and independence.
Professor Charlotte Clarke is Head of the School of Health in Social Science at the University of Edinburgh; Professor Matthias Schwannauer is Head of Clinical & Health Psychology at the University of Edinburgh; and Professor Julie Taylor is Professor of Child Protection in the School of Health and Population Science at the University of Birmingham.
