November 2017

Aged care is the theme for our November issue.

Practice articles include one on oral hygiene care for older adults living in hospital-level care; a student nurse experiences a crisis on a rural health placement; the responses to staff and clients at having a café as part of an aged-care facility; and a nurse describes being part of a worldwide study DIAN – the Dominantly-Inherited Alzheimer Network. A nurse practitioner in older adults Bridget Richards describes her Waikato-based practice and CPD for Nurses examines the biology of ageing.
