AnnotationIn the light of changes in care practice following the 1989 White Paper "Caring for people" (Cm 849), how are older people going to gain access to services, and how can they be sustained and supported in becoming active and critical consumers? Eric Midwinter (Director, Centre for Policy on Ageing - CPA) was among four contributors at the seminar to raise issues about our understanding of consumerism and advocacy. Six other papers discussed examples of good practice. (RH).
