  • Living with ageing and dying: international perspectives on palliative and end of life care for older people

    Gott, Caryl; Ingleton, C (2011)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Ageing populations mean that palliative and end of life care for older people must assume greater priority. Indeed, there is an urgent need to improve the experiences of older people at the end of life, given that they have been identified as the 'disadvantaged dying'. To date, models of care are underpinned by the ideals of specialist palliative care which were developed to meet the needs of predominantly middle-aged and 'young old' people, and evidence suggests these may not be adequate for the older population group. This book identifies ways forward for improving the end of life experiences of older people by taking an interdisciplinary and international approach. Providing a synergy between the currently disparate literature of gerontology and palliative care, a wide range of leading international experts contribute to discussions regarding priority areas in relation to ageing and end of life care. Some authors take a theoretical focus, others a very practical approach rooted in their clinical and research experience. The issues covered are diverse, as are the countries in which discussions are contextualised. Those working in both palliative care and gerontology will find the issues and advice discussed in this book hugely topical and of real practical value.

  • User involvement in cancer care: Exclusion and empowerment

    Gott, Caryl; Stevens, Tony; Small, Neil (2000-03-01)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This publication, based on a study conducted in the Trent Region of the NHS, identifies the various ways in which user involvement has developed in relation to cancer care. Most people in the UK will have direct experience of cancer, either as a patient themselves or when someone close to them is a patient. The findings presented here have widespread significance. However their relevance goes beyond cancer. When considering user involvement in relation to other areas of need, looking to the experiences of cancer care can provide guidelines. Specific guidelines are included on how to develop user involvement from both a user and provider perspective.

  • Sexuality, sexual health and ageing

    Gott, Caryl (2005)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    What factors underpin dominant understandings of later life sexuality? ?? How do older people experience and prioritise sexuality and sexual health? ?? What sexual health issues are relevant to older people and how are these addressed by health care professionals? This is the first book to integrate theoretical insights into sexuality, sexual health and ageing, with research findings from studies conducted with older people and the professionals that work with them. The book is split into three sections. In the first section stereotypes that typify contemporary understandings of sexuality and ageing are explored, particularly the ???myth of asexual old age??? and the more recent stereotype of the ???sexy oldie???. Section two identifies what we actually know about ageing and sexuality by reviewing current literature, as well as presenting findings from one of the first qualitative studies to explore sexuality from the perspective of older people themselves. The final section of the book explores what ???sexual health??? means within the context of ageing and focuses on issues relevant to health professionals working with older people. Sexuality, Sexual Health and Ageing provides key reading for students, researchers, practitioners and policymakers working within gerontology, sociology, psychology, social work, health sciences, nursing and medicine. This book is likely to become essential reading for all academics and professionals working with older people or in the area of sexual health.

  • The Scope and Intensity of Substantive Review: Traversing Taggart's Rainbow

    Various authors (2015)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Responding to and building on the work of Professor Michael Taggart, this book brings together essays on two contrasting issues concerning the scope and intensity of substantive grounds of review. Firstly, whether and to what extent review on substantive grounds such as unreasonableness, proportionality and substantive legitimate expectations should be expanded and intensified; and secondly, whether review on illegality grounds should ever retreat from the usual correctness standard. Fundamental rights as grounds of review raise both of these questions, and a separate part is devoted to them. Taggart's support for expansion of substantive grounds of review was of a piece with his recognition of the need for judicial restraint or deference in appropriate contexts. The latter took the form both of his ultimate opposition to proportionality as a ground for review in non-rights cases and of his support for varying intensity review under the illegality heading. Such awareness of the bigger picture and the need for balance within it is in short supply in the literature. This book is intended to continue Taggart's work in putting the pieces of the jigsaw back together.
