Abstract

[Extract] An individual's senses are essential for growth, development and survival. Sensory stimuli give meaning to events in the environment. Any alteration in a person's sensory function can affect their ability to function within the environment. For example, many people have impaired sensory functions that put them at risk in the health care setting; nurses can help them find ways to function safely in this often confusing environment.
