It is far too easy to include 'dementia' in the nursing curriculum for student nurses and in CPD programmes for nurses, but it is quite another to ensure engagement with the diverse and complex needs of persons living with dementia and those affected by it. This book for nurses and nursing students should be the 'go to' resource in ensuring that all nurses have a sound starting point for understanding how to meet people living with dementia as 'persons' with all their diversity and complexity - just like the rest of us!
Professor Claire Surr, Director of the Centre for Dementia Research, Leeds Beckett University
This book is a valuable resource on best practice care for people with dementia. Its accessible chapters, authored by experts in the field, summarise the contemporary evidence-base and present practical case examples on a wide range of essential topics from diagnosis to end of life care.
