Editorial Reviews

John Adams
'This slim volume brings together research findings and practical suggestions for delivering care. Divided into two parts, the first section focuses on recent research that helps to illuminate key aspects of nursing care, while the second discusses the directions in which practice should be developed. This book uses frequent case studies and practice scenarios to illustrate how theoretical approaches can be incorporated into everyday practice. Examples range from the acute medical or surgical unit to the care home and the community, so nurses in all settings are likely to find ideas and resources of particular value and interest to them'

Nursing Older People - Sue Paxton
'At Last, here is a practical guide to approaching care of older people in hospitals as well as other settings. For this reason, it should be considered an essential ward teaching and mentoring tool. Illustrated with varied and realistic scenarios, this book encourages self-reflection and includes learning outcomes and activities to facilitate learning. This book should certainly be considered for inclusion in libraries and care settings and is recommended as supplementary reference for care workers undertaking diploma-level training'
