Nursing Older People, 4th Edition

Nursing Older People, 4th Edition

The fourth edition of this highly successful text is an ideal resource for practitioners from all disciplines working in a wide range of care settings for older people. It conveys the depth of knowledge needed to develop the complex and sometimes delicate skills required for nursing interventions and support of older people. It takes an evidence-based and person-centred approach to understanding and meeting older people's needs as well as problems that nurses and other practitioners deal with every day, such as pain, immobility, breathlessness, eating and drinking.

This edition has been extensively rewritten by subject experts from nursing, social work, physiotherapy, gerontology and sociology. The 34 chapters are organised in four sections, which cover:

. Ageing and old age
. Policy Change and the Contexts of Care
. Nursing Older People: independence, autonomy and self-fulfilment
. Current issues and reflections on caring for older people.
