dc.description.abstractNearly half of older people admitted to hospital experience functional decline, which is loss in the ability to independently perform basic activities of daily life such as walking or dressing. This study looked at ways that hospital leaders can support nurses in preventing functional decline. Key issues include leaders’ emphasis on efficiency, which undermines nurses’ efforts to promote older people’s functioning in hospital.en_US
