Evidence Informed Nursing with Older People (1444340115) cover image
Evidence Informed Nursing with Older People is an essential text for nursing students and registered nurses working with older people who are seeking to make connections between theory, evidence and value based gerontological practice. The rapidly rising aging global population requires that more attention is given to the needs and requirements of older people. This textbook is a key resource for nursing students and registered nurses working with older people who wish to improve their practice.

Evidence Informed Nursing with Older People takes a unique case-study approach, with individual chapters presenting nursing practice-based case studies on some of the most common areas of care faced by nurses working around the world with older people. Each case study illustrates the connections between practice, theory, evidence and values. User-friendly and accessible, this textbook includes key points, reflection activities, test points, and perspectives from older people throughout. 

Key features

  • An up-to-date treatment of the nursing contribution to key geriatric syndromes
  • International expert contributions from the UK, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia and China
  • An evidence-based, case-study approach to the care of older people
