The Moulster and Griffiths nursing model is the first developed specifically for learning disability nurses. This book describes the model and offers a solid framework to assess, plan, reflect on and evaluate person-centred care.
With approximately 1.5 million people in Britain living with a learning disability and a proven correlation between the use of models of care and the achievements of outcomes for those supported, this book is the perfect tool for learning disability nurses. It ensures that there is a shared vision for learning disability nursing practice, and helps nurses address a wide variety of heath care needs.
By providing an in-depth description of the model, the book provides a dedicated structure for learning disability nursing, and remains unique in its transferability to different clinical settings.
The authors have produced a book that will not just help nurses practice in a person centred, evidence based and outcome focused way but to also articulate and be explicit about their contribution and the evidence on which they base their practice. This book gives you the tools to apply the model in practice and demonstrate the impact of the learning disability nurse. A key text for nurses and students, this will be a go-to-guide for many years to come.
