In line with other helping professions nursing has moved from traditional views of technical expertise as the prime shaper of health care, to a more equal relationship with service users and patients which respects their expertise, knowledge, goals and choices. This philosophy has underpinned the movement to involve older people in care, policy and planning activities. The literature review presented in this paper highlights the growing literature on this subject with respect to older people and maps the key issues and debates for nursing.
