& Academics:
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.
