As the environment of care continues to evolve to promote person-centredness, dignity, health, and wellbeing, for nurses working with older people, this can be challenging. Nursing Older People at a Glance is a timely publication which provides an overview of key concepts that nurses need to know in order to care for older people in a wide range of settings. Divided into six sections, it explores a range of themes such as person-centred care, health and wellbeing, health promotion, and the complexity of older people's care, encompassing mental wellbeing, diverse communities and learning disability. With a strong focus on dignity in care throughout, Nursing Older People at a Glance will readily equip undergraduate and post-qualification nurses with the knowledge and skills required to care for older people in a competent and compassionate manner.
