9780122981906: Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Older Adult: A Clinician's Guidebook

One of the largest patient populations seen by neuropsychologists are older adults suffering from problems associated with aging. Further, the proportion of the population aged 65 and above is rising rapidly. This book provides a guide to neuropsychological clinicians increasingly called upon to assess this population. The book details in a step-by-step fashion the phases and considerations in performing a neuropsychological assessment of an older patient. It covers procedural details including review of patient's medical records, clinical interview, formal testing, interpretation of test scores, addressing referral questions, and preparing an evaluation report.

From the Back Cover:

Dementia affects up to a quarter of the world's population. Given the growing proportion of the population over age 65, dementia will continue to be a major public health concern. Cost-effective detection and treatment of dementing illnesses will increasingly challenge clinical practice.
Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Older Adult: A Clinician's Guidebook presents a framework for assessing whether an individual has experienced abnormal cognitive change. The book's framework follows a logical sequence, beginning with the clinical interview, moving through formal testing, identification of the patient's neuropsychological profile, preparing the evaluation report, planning feedback and follow-up services. Specific clinical guidelines and suggestions are included, addressing issues such as ensuring patient cooperation, testing efficiency, and successfully managing complex patient-family interactions. Readers will also find technical information, including principles of test design and profiles of the major neurobehavioral disorders affecting older adults.
This book will be a valuable and frequently used tool for professionals evaluating older adults, including: neuropsychologists, physicians, nurses, and social workers. The guidebook will also be useful to graduate students in clinical and neuropsychology.
