Nursing is not a powerful profession yet nurses can have considerable power over those they care for. In a changing health service, power relationships between different professionals and clients may undergo significant changes. To empower either themselves or their clients, nurses must be able to understand the dynamics and nature of power relationships within society. Taking a sociological perspective, this book introduces readers to methods of analysing power and power relationships while clearly demonstrating the relevance to nursing practice.
