Regulating aged care : ritualism and the new pyramid / John Braithwaite, Toni Makkai, Valerie Braithwaite.

by Braithwaite, John | Makkai, Toni | Braithwaite, Valerie (Valerie A.).

Publisher: Cheltenham, UK ; Northampton, MA : Edward Elgar, c2007Description: xi, 372 p. : ill.Review: "The authors compare the accomplishments of nursing home regulation in the US, the UK and Australia during the last 20 years and in a longer historical perspective. They find that gaming and ritualism, rather than defiance of regulators. are the greatest challenges for improving safety and quality of life for the elderly in care homes. Regulating Aged Care shows how good regulation and caring professionalism can transcend ritualism. Better regulation is found to be as much about encouragement to expand strengths as incentives to fix problems. The book is underpinned by one of the most ambitious, sustained qualitative and quantitative data collections in both the regulatory literature and the aged care literature. This study provides an impressive evidence base for both theory development and reassessment of policy and practitioner responses in the field."Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
