Learning Disabilities

Practice Issues in Health Settings

by Margaret Todd,

Learning Disabilities raises issues which are of crucial importance to all health care professionals and students who work with people with a learning disability. The authors, senior nurse teachers and practitioners in the field, examine these issues, and the theoretical concepts underpinning them, from a practical perspective. They show how complex and interconnecting ideas such as consumerism and choice, control and empowerment, informed choice and professional power can be applied with real understanding. Learning Disabilities includes
* introductions and explanations of key concepts
* practical guidelines for care delivery
* detailed case studies
* useful summaries of key points
