This first edition Australian text aligns nursing care principles and practice to the unique requirements of older people.

Written by leading academics and clinicians, Gerontological Nursing: A holistic approach to the care of older people covers the essential skills of gerontological care with a focus on chronic diseases, neurocognitive disorders, mental health, quality of life and healthy ageing, palliative care and bereavement, safety issues, and the role of the caregiver.

As nurses play an ever more critical role in supporting the needs of an ageing population, this essential text will enable nursing students to navigate the complexities of older people’s healthcare, promote healthy ageing, and help people to live well.
