This book focuses specifically on quality assurance in the social work and social care context. Designed for managers and practitioners responsible for quality assurance and performance management, it utilises traditional theories and seeks to adapt these to meet the social care environment. The history and background to the development of 'quality' are examined and the literature and research reviewed in order to develop a theory base. Common practical issues and dilemmas for managers are explored with a clear service user focus throughout. Using an accessible style, this book enables readers to transfer learning to their own unique settings and roles.
