Driven by the recommendations for the National Service Framework
(NSF) for Older People, this book is written in collaboration with
EMAP Healthcare Open Learning in the UK. Nursing students are given
a solid grounding in what is involved in nursing older people. An
entire chapter is dedicated to policies, frameworks, and political
and social issues surrounding the care of older adults. By using
one major case study, which develops throughout the text, the book
brings the subject into real-life perspective.
