Karen Watchman (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Presenting the most up-to-date information available about dementia and intellectual disabilities, this book brings together the latest international research and evidence-based practice, and describes clearly the relevance and implications for support and services

Internationally renowned experts from the UK, Ireland, the USA, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands discuss good practice and the way forward in relation to assessment, diagnosis, interventions, staff knowledge and training, care pathways, service design, measuring outcomes and the experiences of individuals, families and carers. The wealth of information offered will inform support and services throughout the whole course of dementia, from diagnosis to end of life. Particular emphasis is placed on how intellectual disability and dementia services can work collaboratively to offer more effective, joined up support.

Practitioners, managers and commissioners will find this to be an informative resource for developing person-centred provision for people with intellectual disabilities and dementia and their families. It will also be a key text for academics and students who wish to be up-to-date with the latest research and practice developments in this field.
