This book provides a practical look at the way in which the care of those with learning disabilities is changing from an autocratic to a democratic approach, encouraging clients to become more responsible for their own treatment regimes. The authors examine the implications for learning-disabled clients when directives from policy-makers have to be implemented. This is a book that is rooted in real-life situations, showing how the profession can have the client at the centre of their concerns, whilst still complying with Policy. It is a book that will be of practical use to all nurses working with learning-disabled clients and takes a unique approach to the subject.
