"From a combined team of academics and practicing clinicians, Johnson’s Caring for Older People 2e is the most representative resource in the market, featuring a diverse range of ethnicities, genders and sexualities. The experiences of minority groups are featured throughout, and the chapter on sexuality in older people is the most comprehensive of any text in the field. The only aged care resource to be delivered as an interactive Wiley E-Text, Johnson’s second edition is an engaging digital resource rich in media such as videos, animations and interactives that bring cases to life."--Publisher.
