Care planning and delivery form an essential part of everyday practice for all intellectual disability nurses. Care Planning and Delivery in Intellectual Disability Nursing explores how nurses can enable people with intellectual disabilities to obtain good quality care, encouraging them to use the best possible guidance to plan their professional care and to reflect on their practice.

The first section of Care Planning and Delivery in Intellectual Disability Nursing explores care planning, care pathways, person-centred care planning, life planning, legal and ethical implications of care planning and risk assessment. The second section explores care planning for people with profound and/or complex needs, care planning for good health, and care planning and delivery in more specialist settings including forensic, mental health, palliative care, community nursing and residential settings.
