This book discusses psychiatry, psychiatric nursing, and geriatrics. It is suitable for psychiatrists, psychiatric nurses, nursing home staff, and administrators. This is a practical book, aimed at providing training and guidance for staff members in long-term care facilities. The goal is to help staff understand and solve the wide range of psychiatric and behavioral problems which are encountered on a day-to-day basis. Numerous clinical illustrations are presented. This material is invaluable for all team members: nurses, physicians, social workers, psychologists, and occupational therapists. It is especially helpful for frontline health care aides who work most closely with the residents, and for supervisors and administrators. As a result, it also serves as a useful tool for teaching students. The emphasis is on training all members of the staff to provide the highest quality of care, in the most cost-effective and productive manner. Most of the authors have worked together at Baycrest (a large university affiliated, multilevel geriatric centre, which has an international reputation for its excellence in the care of the elderly) or at other University of Toronto teaching hospitals.
