Biographical Interviews: The Link Between Research and Practice edited by Joanna Bornat

'... provides important evidence and illumination of biographical work.'

Nursing Older People

Biographical, life history and reminiscence-based approaches to health and social care work with older people have proved extremely popular with care workers. Researchers have also demonstrated positive outcomes when older people are provided with opportunities to recall and review a past life. Each of the authors to this study has developed biographical approaches to research and practice in original ways. The aim is to develop an awareness of the direct contribution which familiarity with a life history can make to good quality care practice.
