    Review quote
    A refreshing read... from a readers point of view it both informs them of the theory and policy context but also empowers them by suggesting and including practical examples and tools Danny Walsh, Lecturer, Mental Health, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences, The University of Nottingham By reading this book I think students will be challenged to consider how they should develop their practice to meet the needs of this group. I feel they would find the practical approach offered to be particularly helpful. Lisa Poynor, Community Learning Disability Nurse, Community Team for People with Learning disabilities, Surrey and Boarders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Written in a way that would be ideal for a 1st or 2nd year nursing students. Graham MacIntosh, University of Glasgow Relevant, contemporary and easy to read... an excellent overview which would be a good starting point for new readers in the subject. Gary Blatch, Dementia Strategy Manager, South Essex Partnership Foundation Trust
