RCNi, Nursing Standard and Nursing Older People, are also running a new series of articles on dementia, which will tackle a wide range of issues relating to the care of people with dementia. Central to the series is the recognition that nursing makes a huge contribution to good outcomes for families affected by this increasingly common condition.
