About this book
The book contains the essential information for treating common health problems of the elderly in a brief, easy to reference format. Nursing diagnoses are integrated throughout and serve as a valuable introduction to a concept new to U.K. nursing. In addition to discussing the basic categories of health problems, the book addresses the general principles of promoting wellness including psychosocial considerations, nutrition, and the creation of an environment that facilitates improvement of the older person's quality of life. Discussion points are also included to highlight some of the less cut and dried issues raised in the preceding sections.
