In the previous three articles in this series (Vol 9(1): 39-42; Vol 9(2): 103-6; Vol 9(3): 157-60), nurses have been challenged to reconsider their approach towards the care of older people. To facilitate this it is helpful to provide specific examples of how expert practice might be achieved. Using one of the most prevalent but neglected problems of old age, hearing disability, the authors describe how nurses can contribute to the health of older people and maximize the therapeutic component within gerontological nursing.
