Overview

THE DEFINITIVE TEXT ON THE PRINCIPLES AND CLINCAL PRACTICE OF NURSING HOME CARE

Nursing Home Care is a practical textbook designed to serve as a rich evidence-based resource to provide physicians and other practitioners with the information and knowledge to advance nursing home care. It states and explains the principles underpinning safe, personalized, and dignified nursing home practice using an integrated, cooperative approach. In addition, it

provides the medical knowledge necessary to give quality care to nursing home residents.

Nursing Home Care reflects the International Association for Geriatrics and Gerontology's conviction that nursing home practice is an interdisciplinary endeavor that requires a sound theoretical, scientific, and values base in addition to clinical expertise. Mindful of the influences of different culture and context, the premise of this text is that there is a shared and common

knowledge base to guide nursing home practice and approaches to caring that are universal.

THIS UNIQUE TEXT IS LOGICALLY DIVIDED INTO FOUR PARTS:

PART 1 covers the origins of the nursing home movement, plus alternative approaches, including aging in place and what older people are saying about nursing home life and culture change.

PART 2 focuses on the fundamentals of working as part of a nursing home team providing day-to-day care and the leadership essentials to drive the quality improvement agenda.

PART 3 addresses the most common conditions experienced by older nursing home residents.

PART 4 is devoted to clinical and nursing aspects of specific disease management.

KEY FEATURES:

Online supplemental material, including 1,000 PowerPoint slides available to faculty, plus Q&A available from the IAGGI
• Over 150 multiple choice questions
• Key points for each chapter
• An essential study guide for the IAGG certificate in nursing home care

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricica A. Kincade, BSN (University of Missouri-Columbia)
Description: This is a comprehensive book that offers a holistic and interdisciplinary approach to caring for the elderly. The framework for the book is based on the Core Competencies set forth by the International Association for Gerontology and Geriatrics (IAGG).
Purpose: Based on years of experience and evidence-based research, the authors share their knowledge to help ensure that nursing home residents receive the best care possible. The authors focus is to: improve knowledge on quality of care nursing home to nursing home, and country to country; share experiences in the multiple aspects of nursing home care and management; share the knowledge from new evidence-based medicine, evidence-based nursing and social care, and clinical research — for a long time, clinical research has been excluded from the nursing home setting, but it is only by translating evidence from clinical, nursing, social, and psychological research that we will be able to improve our practice and share our experiences; create a community of health and social care professionals, practice leaders, and managers to improve our work.
Audience: This book gives physicians and other practitioners the information they need to provide quality care for the growing elderly population in the nursing home setting.
Features: The book is distinguished by its thorough focus on all aspects of nursing home life, including an introduction to nursing home life and alternatives, fundamentals of nursing home practice, and age-related syndromes and disease management. Key features include online supplemental material, including 1,000 PowerPoint slides for faculty, questions and answers from IAGGI, over 150 multiple choice questions, key points for each chapter, and an essential study guide for the IAGG certificate in nursing home care.
Assessment: As the baby-boomer generation ages, populations around the world are rapidly aging, affecting societies and likely making nursing home care a major social problem. This book provides the information needed to ensure quality care for the growing elderly population in this setting.
