Omtale: Care of Vulnerable Older People
It is reasonable to expect that most people will live a relatively healthy life as they age, with their dignity intact and rights guaranteed. For many, however, reality may be quite different: the findings of key reports highlight the need to raise awareness of the failures in health and social care systems to safeguard vulnerable older people. In this important text, a team of expert authors brings the focus to how legislation, ethics and national policy can be applied to the context of protecting 'at risk' older adults. Clear and accessible, the book will improve nurses' skills in safeguarding vulnerable older people, aided by the use of such helpful features as: * Detailed case studies to link theory with practice * Explicit 'Thinking Points' to encourage readers to reflect on how law, policy and ethics can be applied to their own practice * In-depth discussion of statutory and case law, and analysis of relevant Serious Case Reviews An essential read for students and qualified nurses alike, this text provides the reader with a solid foundation for clinical decision-making and safeguarding vulnerable older people, as well as a forum for discussion and reflection.
