Published Reviews

    "The text is also well supported with a variety of student and academic resources, which can be accessed through the publisher’s website. Thus a particular strength of the book is that it can be used as the core component of a wide ranging and interactive learning experience. I consider this text valuable learning material for all nurses who work with older adults and I would particularly recommend it for undergraduate nursing students and postgraduate students specialising in the field."
