Product description

Caring for Older People is a timely and welcome addition to the nursing and health-care literature. The book introduces and describes collaborative ways of working with older people, ensuring that students and practitioners are better equipped to provide consistently high-quality care that can make a positive difference to the lives of older people and their families. Providing an accessible, evidence-based framework and a wealth of practical strategies which can be implemented on a daily basis, Christine Brown Wilson takes the reader step by step through different approaches to nursing care and shows clearly how that care can move from being a task-focused to a person-focused experience. Case-based scenarios threaded throughout the book also illustrate how the quality of care can be enhanced, and how students and practitioners can work effectively with older people while balancing the competing demands of the health and social care system. The author also shows how nurses can influence current practice, equipping the reader with key skills that can be used to challenge poor ways of working and to identify methods through which inadequate provision can be turned around.
This book will be indispensable reading for all nursing and healthcare students and practitioners who want to improve the quality of life for older people.
