Book Description

20 Aug 2009 0199533229 978-0199533220
Learning or intellectual disability nurses can be found working and supporting people in a variety of different care contexts. These include the healthcare system, social care and education, as well as the private sector (including voluntary and not for profit organizations). Numerous other professional disciplines also work alongside nurses in these areas including; clinical psychologists, social workers, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists, and consultant psychiatrists.

The Oxford Handbook of Learning and Intellectual Disability Nursing offers up-to-date, concise, and practical information for use in all areas where intellectual disability nurses are located. It includes a section on practical applications and therapeutic interventions, as well as an emergencies section and coverage of the main points of Mental Health legislation. Unique to this Oxford Handbook is the attention given to differences in legislation and social policy across the constituent countries of the UK and Ireland.

The Oxford Handbook of Learning and Intellectual Disability Nursing is clearly laid out and written in readable note-based style. It is an invaluable companion to students, community and hospital based nurses, and all those working with people with learning or intellectual disabilities.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst on a nursing placement, I was recommended this book by one of my mentors. I had a brief look through, and thought, this book is really valuable for my study, and future career. The book has assessments, mental capacity, epilepsy, behaviours that challenge, and all the informative information, for working with people with learning disabilities. It is an ideal size for your handbag, and handy to have.
