Care of Older People Resource Centre

The Nursing in Practice Care of Older People Resource Centre aims to bring together the latest news and clinical articles on a range of conditions specific to older people, to help you provide the best care.

With the numbers of people over 65 increasing in the UK year on year, and the subsequent rise in conditions affecting older people, such as dementia, arthritis, osteoporosis and cancer, it is important for primary care nurses to be aware of how to treat this particular group when they seek health advice.
