Synopsis: Written in a plain and jargon-free manner, this practical manual is designed to help all members of staff in long-term care facilities, including nurses, nursing aides or auxiliaries, physicians, social workers, psychologists and occupational therapists. It discusses solutions for the wide range of psychiatric and behavioural problems which are encountered on a day-to-day basis. The volume should also be a useful resource for teaching students and for continuing education, and also for supervisors and administrators. Numerous clinical illustrations are included, as well as family information sheets, which are a practical tool for education of residents' families and for facilitating communication. The emphasis throughout the book is on training all members of staff to provide the highest quality of care, in the most cost-effective and productive manner. This second edition has been expanded and updated. It includes new chapters on planning mental health educational programmes and optimizing the use of psychotropic medication.

Review: "The overwhelming majority of nursing home residents have a diagnosable psychiatric disorder... This is an important book designed to fill the gaps between what residents need and the care that most facilities are designed to provide"
