"Nursing Older People focuses on evidence-based care and the effectiveness of interventions that support independence. It takes a person-centred approach to understanding and meeting the needs and problems that nurses and other practitioners deal with every day, such as the need to reduce the difficulties faced by problems of pain, immobility, breathlessness, eating and drinking and eliminating, for example. The accessible evidence-based information in this book will help to give practitioners the confidence to challenge the status quo and look for ways to improve the quality of care."--BOOK JACKET.

This book is a UK adaptation of a Mosby US text, Ebersole & Hess: Toward Health and Aging: Human Needs and Nursing Response. It outlines the theoretical foundations which underpin caring for elderly people, before moving on toconsider the specific physiological and psychological problems that the elderly face and that those caring for them have to deal with. The latest research, theory and discussions of current practice are integrated throughout the book. The book acknowledges the diversity of older peoples' lives and the environment they inhabit in the UK. It also adopts a theoretical framework "Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs". This states that each individual has an innate hierarchy of needs that motivates all human behavior. These human needs have different priorities. When people achieve fulfillment of elementary needs, they strive to meet those on the next level until the highest order of needs is reached. Maslow's model is widely known and has been found particularly helpful in facilitating a holistic view of older people. * Adopts Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs model, helpful in facilitating a holistic view of older people. * Provides bridge between theoretical foundations of care and actual care provision. * Incorporates 115 illustrations which enhance the text and clarify concepts. * Provide Case Studies for real-life learning. * Includes Chapter Introductions and Chapter Summaries which point out main concepts and provide a useful revision tool. * Features Further Reading lists with the most current book and journal articles for additional information.
