Pervading the resource is a holistic approach in which all facets of the individual: physical and mental health, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, self-care, family relationships and unique risks for this population, are considered.Designed for daily use, the guide is consistently organised in bullet-point Fast Facts style for easy access to information.
