Description:
This paper sets out the main provisions of the 1990 Health (Nursing Homes) Act and attempts to locate the Act as a policy instrument in the wider policy debate on service provision for the elderly. In the analysis and comment which accompany the outline of the Acts contents, some important aspects of implementation are examined and the consequences of particular provisions for the implementation process at health board and national level are given some practical consideration. The paper begins with a discussion of the factors which are shaping international health policy for the elderly. These include: demographic and social structural changes; the emerging critique of the biomedical bias in the care and treatment of the elderly and the new emphasis on more integrated, flexible models of care. The remainder of the paper examines and discusses the objectives and detailed provisions of the Act.
