'This book is both a timely and challenging exploration of providing personal care for people with learning disabilities, an area of care provision that tends to be neglected in comparison with high profile areas of care management today. Well researched and presented, there is comprehensive coverage of all main aspects of providing intimate and personal care, ranging from the wider context (culturally sensitive provision, sexuality, health and hygiene, and law) to more specific practice areas (multi-disciplinary working, teaching independent living skills, people with profound/multiple disabilities, children and young people and older adults).' - Professional Social Work 'Intimate and Personal Care with People with learning Disabilities edited by Steven Carnaby and Paul Cambridge (Jessica Kingsley Publishers, £19.99) is an academic book but it is fascinating and written to inform and change practice. Giving intimate care is possibly the most difficult and complex area of care work, yet it is rarely analysed and understood in this sort of depth. We tend to write rather pompous and detached policies about dignity and privacy and they don't actually help staff to discuss and think through the realities that they face when helping clients with the most intimate situations. Care plans may generalise and skate over the details, leaving residents and staff to do their best in situations that are personally and professionally challenging. This is a book for managers (of care homes of all kinds) who want to develop their team's capacity to think and to understand, and thereby to provide the very best care.' - Caring Times 'Probably the first substantial discussion of and guide to this essential area of care practice. A wideranging volume which deserves to be read and kept as a reference volume by all professional teams providing intimate care.' - Current Awareness Service This important guide is the first to consider the management and practice of intimate and personal care for people with learning disabilities. It examines in detail aspects of care such as training, ethnicity, sexuality and competence in practice, drawing on the extensive practical experience of the contributors. They discuss important issues including the nature of touch, how physical contact is intended and experienced, carers' duty of care, and risk management. Against the backdrop of a recent government strategy for people with learning disabilities, the book will also explore management considerations of best value, care standards, performance monitoring and inspection. Providing academic, professional and learning outcomes from research, this book will be an invaluable guide to managers, policy makers, carers, academics and students in the field of social care and learning disability.

It takes the reader through all the key factors in the healthcare process, through pre-admission assessment, care planning, intervention and treatment, and liaison and discharge planning, while highlighting key healthcare needs at each stage. The Department of Health, the National Health Service Executive and Mencap have all reported that people with learning disabilities have increased health needs compared to the general population, yet these needs are often poorly met and people experience difficulties in accessing appropriate services. This is a timely and accessible resource for healthcare professionals in need of a general introduction to caring for people with a learning disability. Relevant to the care of both children and adults with a learning disability Use of case studies to illustrate examples of situations explored in the main text Focuses on key areas of communication, understanding behavior and the often difficult area of consent

Choice and equity of access to primary and secondary health care services is a priority within all aspects of the NHS, however it must be recognised that for some people access to health care can pose difficulties. For various reasons people with learning disabilities can present a range of challenges for the people around them, during times of ill health any difficulties will become ever more apparent. For the health professional working in mainstream primary and secondary care settings, these challenges can be difficult to overcome when attempting to identify health needs and deliver holistic care that is responsive to their individual needs. Health Care Provision and People with Learning Disabilities - A Guide for Health Professionals provides clear information that will assist mainstream health care providers in gaining greater understanding of people with learning disabilities and managing their health needs. Each chapter gives the reader information and guidance on dealing with a variety of situations found in health care settings. Examples of good practice are explained using case examples and experiences of people with learning disabilities and their carers. The book describes what is expected from the various health care teams and offers solutions to potential challenges and barriers they may be faced with. It includes information regarding specialist support services that can offer assistance to the individual and to the mainstream staff teams, while ideas are also offered on how to present information in a format people who have communication difficulties can understand. The evidence base for Health Care Provision and People with Learning Disabilities - A Guide for Health Professionals has been drawn from extensive research, personal experience, policy guidance, as well as some of the current legislation that is applicable to this diverse group of people. The information shared will prove useful for those working in health settings as well as those undertaking studies in health care.

Care home workers increasingly work with people nearing the end of their lives, including people with medically complex conditions. However, many do not have a medical background and find that practical advice on how to address these people's very specific needs is scarce. In this book, Christine Reddall draws on almost four decades of nursing experience to create a clear and easy-to-read handbook primarily for workers caring for the dying in care homes, but which will also be of interest to family members caring for relatives with life-threatening conditions.'This is a resource book to provide information on palliative care. It is designed primarily to help carers who work in care homes of all categories. To my knowledge, this is the first book written solely for carers working in care homes that addresses the issues of caring for someone with palliative care needs. However, people with whom I have spoken to about this book, or who have read parts of it, have all said that it would also be a helpful resource to non-professional family carers who care for a family member in their own home. The style of this book is designed to be readable by all levels of carers, and I have endeavoured to keep the language and text as 'non-medical' as possible. I have tried to put myself in the shoes of carers, especially those without medical training, and think of what they want to know when caring for someone with a life threatening illness'

This new edition of the Oxford Handbook of Learning and Intellectual Disability Nursing has been fully updated, with a greater focus on older people with learning and intellectual disabilities and mental health issues, as well as bringing all recommendations in line with current guidelines. Since the first edition of this book was published, services for people with learning disabilities and their families have become more community-based, and the demography of the population of people with learning disabilities has changed to include many older people, and children and young adults with complex physical health needs. This handbook provides clear information for readers on practical steps that may be taken to actively engage with people who have learning disabilities, to enable effective care in which they are involved as much as possible with decisions that affect them. This book also covers differences in legislation and social policy across the constituent countries in the United Kingdom and Ireland, including changes that have been implemented since serious case reviews into institutional abuse. An emergencies section provides key information at critical times in practice. The chapter on practice resources has been fully revised to bring together the latest tools to support nurses, complete with links for easy access. Written by experienced practitioners who are recognised experts in their areas of speciality, the Oxford Handbook of Learning and Intellectual Disability Nursing is an invaluable guide for students, community and hospital based nurses, and all those who work with people with intellectual disabilities as part of a multidisciplinary team.

'This excellent, informative and well presented, a book provides the reader with fourteen edited chapters covering an area of policy and practice that is quite specific but will inform anyone interested in the development of a service user participation ethos in adult social care. It is a book that is relevant to managers and practitioners, both as students and qualified professionals, as well as academics. Care management is now well established in the everyday practice of predominantly statutory organisations. This book revisits the principles of this method of assessing and planning the care needs of adult service users, and introduces Person Centred Planning (PCP) as a suitable method for ensuring that much of the empowerment rhetoric care management is actually realised.' - British Journal of Social Work 'Part of the attraction of this book is its strong practice component. This is applicable to the different professionals working with people with learning disabilities, in whatever their service configuration. For students, the book will also provide a good introduction to the impact of person centred planning and its connections to a long history of similar initiatives.' - Journal of Interprofessional Care 'This book is a stimulating and challenging read of those working in service development generally, as well as learning disability services. There is a potential broad care management readership that might also find this relevant and interesting.' - Journal of Interprofessional Care 'This is an important book. It brings together chapters by many of the foremost researchers and practitioners in person centred planning. The book contains many ideas for taking the PCP process to a higher level of sophistication to really underpin the future development of appropriate and effective services.' - Community Living 'This book will help social workers to reconnect with the core values of their profession and to challenge institutionalised policies and practices. It has proven to be a valuable teaching resource and whilst its focus is on people with learning disabilities, the principles of PCP that it raises are relevant to any service user group and social work arena. Highly recommended.' - Professional Social Work 'There are many important issues facing the care management system today in the light of person-centred planning and approaches, and you would be hard-pressed to find a better collection of insightful and radical thinkers in this area than those featured here. It asks hard questions, and challenges the professional to adopt more inclusive and accessible work practices. Wherever you work in the field of learning difficulties you should read this book carefully and aim to put "person-centeredness" at the core of your practice.' - Community Care 'You would be hard-pressed to find a better collection of insightful and radical thinkers in the area of care management. Wherever you work in the field of learning difficulties you should read this book carefully and seek to put "person centredness" at the core of your practice. The challenge for professionals, is making it a reality for individuals.' - Community Care This timely book provides a reflective analysis of person centred planning for people with learning disabilities, complementing policy initiatives that focus on individualised planning and service user involvement. Drawing on practical experience and research findings, the contributors explore policy and practice issues, including: * advocacy and empowerment * risk management and adult protection * inter-agency and inter-professional working * ethnicity and culture * de-institutionalisation. Vivid case studies illustrate best practice in person centred planning, and the authors offer a rich variety of ideas for increasing the participation, self-esteem and quality of life of people with learning disabilities. This practical and accessible text is an invaluable guide for policy makers, carers and social work managers, academics and students.

`Sinson's research has two particular pointers for practitioners. First, she uses interviews based on data collected from services to explore the views of people with learning disabilities. The result is a conversational account which makes for easier and empathetic reading... Second, Sinson pointedly relates her findings to the work of practitioners...She makes recommendations about linkages between parts of people's lives to each other, such as relating self-advocacy classes to real-life activities. She also draws attention to some very good practice in relation to risk-taking by organisations, for example, the independence encouraged on holidays and learning from mistakes.' - Journal of Social Work Practice `Of interest to all those concerned with community care.' - Aslib Book Guide The current debate over the transfer of people with developmental disabilities from hospitals to the community has raised serious concerns about the benefits of community integration, with some suggesting that it is both a cruel and costly policy. Whilst the Department of Health is examining the alternative strategy of caring for people with severe developmental disabilities in residential or `village communities', there are conflicting reports about which policy is the most appropriate and the most cost effective. This book presents the client's perspective on transition and relocation into community living, using the experiences of staff, families and residents, largely in their own words. Tracing the steps of ex-residents of Wentwood Education near Devizes in Wiltshire, a college for adolescents with developmental disabilities, the author follows their progress through the community and the problems they face. She concludes that `the unique highpowered training for community integration and leisure given by Wentwood gave these young disadvantaged students a distinct advantage in life'.

Many practitioners within health and social care come into contact with people with intellectual disabilities and want to work in ways that are beneficial to them by making reasonable adjustments in order to meet clients’ needs and expectations. Yet the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities continues to be a neglected area, where unnecessary suffering and premature deaths continue to prevail. This text provides a comprehensive insight into intellectual disability healthcare. It is aimed at those who are training in the field of intellectual disability nursing and also untrained practitioners who work in both health and social care settings. Divided into five sections, it explores how a wide range of biological, health, psychological and social barriers impact upon people with learning disability, and includes: Six guiding principles used to adjust, plan and develop meaningful and accessible health and social services Assessment, screening and diagnosis of intellectual disability across the life course Addressing lifelong health needs Psychological and psychotherapeutic issues, including sexuality, behavioural and mental health needs, bereavement, and ethical concerns. The changing professional roles and models of meeting the needs of people with intellectual and learning disabilities. Intellectual Disability in Health and Social Care provides a wide-ranging overview of what learning disability professionals’ roles are and provides insight into what health and social care practitioners might do to assist someone with intellectual disabilities when specific needs arise.
