Description

This authoritative resource provides nurses and other health care professionals with a comprehensive overview and analysis of self-neglect in older adults. With an aging global population, self-neglect is emerging as a complex problem that crosses multiple disciplines of health and social care. Characterized by a harmful inattention to health and hygiene, self-neglect manifests in a variety of ways that health care professionals around the world need to be able to recognize and manage.

The only text with the latest analysis of theoretical perspectives, research, and evidence from global leaders in the field, this book tackles the interdisciplinary problem of self-neglect to deliver current professional practice tools and clinical practice interventions. Replete with case studies that examine the ethical, legal, and medical issues of self-neglect, the content is immediately applicable to researchers and clinicians. An extensive list of contributors from the United States, Ireland, England, Scotland, Australia, Israel, and Canada includes respected researchers, practitioners, and academics from multiple health and social care disciplines who have played a critical role in advancing research, public awareness, and policy on self-neglect.
