Each case study illustrates the connections between practice, theory, evidence and values.

In my view, this is recommended reading for all staff working in care of older people, which is most of us. (Nursing Times.net, 18 April 2012)
This is an accessible text for the educated reader and one that will surely become a standard handbook for nurses who care for older people. (Nursing Older People, 1 April 2012)"Readers who approach it with an enquiring mind will be rewarded with a deeper understanding of the issues." (Nursing Standard, 17 August 2011)
