Rags and the Adventure with Mrs Fox (Coming end of May) 

Mrs Fox

by Lindsay Cullen

This book is a compendium of case studies that demonstrate the depth and breadth of Health Visiting practice. It demonstrates the complexity of the Health visitor's role. It is written with professionalism but also interjected with humorous anecdotes making it a compelling read. The history of the service is outlined by reference to the author's journey towards her career. The studies demonstrate compassion, commitment, and a belief in the Health Visitors' role in coming alongside the clients but also working professionally within the multidisciplinary team. It is a frank account of community practice, the lives of individuals and families, and the challenges and difficulties they face. This is not an academic text, however, the Case Studies identified could be easily utilized as exemplars for Students of Nursing, Midwifery, and Health Visiting in Enquiry-Based Learning. Footnotes and annotations identify reference sources. Health workers in the community setting could also draw on the material to support their decision-making in practice.
