A rounded account of Community Mental Health Nurses (CMHNs) practice in dementia care has been long overdue. This is the first book to focus on the role of CMHNs in their highly valued work with both people with dementia and their families. This book: explores the complexity and diversity of CMHN work; captures perspectives from along the trajectory of dementia; teases out assessment and intervention approaches; and discusses an emerging evidence base for implications in practice. Contributions to this collection of essays and articles are drawn from CMHN practitioners and researchers at the forefront of their fields. It includes key reading for practitioners, researchers, students, managers and policy makers in the field of community mental health nursing and/or dementia care. The contributors are: Trevor Adams, Peter Ashton, Gill Boardman, Angela Carradice, Chris Clark, Charlotte L.
