Learning Disability Nursing and Care

A Practical Guide for Health and Social Care Professionals

by Chris Barber


The vast majority of student nurses, practising nurses and healthcare professionals are not learning disability specialists, but will still need to treat and care for patients with learning disabilities on a regular basis.

Learning Disability Nursing and Care is a concise introduction to the subject which covers all aspects of the care and support of the learning disabilities patient, for the non-specialist.

Written in a jargon-free style, the book has numerous practical examples and case studies to really help the reader frame the special requirements of the learning disabilities patient in the healthcare setting.
