Accountability is a key concern for nurses and midwives in the NHStoday. Professional accountability--being responsible for youractions and for the outcomes of these actions--is part of theframework of clinical governance, which aims to provide goodquality, cost-effective, evidence-based care. The second edition of Accountability in Nursing andMidwifery addresses current issues and key concerns inaccountability, focusing on accountability in the four mainbranches of nursing (adult, child, learning disabilities and mentalhealth), as well as in midwifery, community nursing, and nursingmanagement. In an increasingly litigious society, the ethical andlegal implications of accountability are growing and it isimportant that nurses understand the implications for everydaypractice.
