The Physiological Effects of Ageing is a comprehensive resource for student nurses, qualified nurses and allied professionals working with older people in a variety of contexts, enabling them to apply their knowledge of the ageing process and in doing so enhance care delivery. This book emphasizes the normal ageing changes before considering possible effects of ageing on body systems. Although problems associated with ageing are identified, nursing assessment and interventions are considered which can help reduce the impact these changes have on a person’s functional ability. This is a highly accessible text which encourages holistic patient-centred care.
