An Integrated Approach
Textbook of Dementia Care: An Integrated Approach gives an overview of dementia care at a level appropriate to health and social care students, as well as providing an update to experienced practitioners. Authors come from a variety of backgrounds including nursing, psychiatry, medicine, psychology and allied health professions. There is a good mix of content from experienced new authors, academics and practitioners.
The book offers:
- A comprehensive list of contributors from different disciplines
- Input from people living with dementia and their family carers
- Relevant research to inform practice
- Case examples to illustrate and inform the text.
While directed primarily at a nursing and social care readership, the book also provides a readable general text appropriate for all involved in dementia care. It is written by expert practitioners in the field, many of whom are leaders in practice-based research. It incorporates the expertise of representatives of Alzheimer Scotland, but also includes accounts of people living with dementia, families, and carers, giving the reader a unique insight into the disease.
