"Foundation Skills for Caring" serves as a Common Foundation Programme/First Year - Nursing degree/diploma; and First year - Allied Health Professional (AHP) degree. AHPs include: Chiropodist/Podiatrists, Dietiticans, Physiotherapists, Prosthetists/Orthotists, Radiographers, Orthopists; strictly speaking, Therapists (arts, drama, music, speech and language). Psychologists and Psychotherapists can be classified as AHPS, although they aren't often taught interprofessionally with the more medical subjects. This title also serves as a Foundation Degree - Health and Social Care. Where student-directed learning is a popular approach, "Foundation Skills for Caring" may be adopted as a one-of-two purchase, otherwise it will be background reading. This title contains "Foundation Studies for Caring" and "Foundation Skills for Caring". Taking an interprofessional, student-centred learning approach, these texts offer pre-registration Nurses and Allied Health Professionals an engaging introduction to the theory and practice of care.
