9780124201231: Psychology and Geriatrics: Integrated Care for an Aging Population

This reference brings together psychological perspectives and medical approaches among professionals in research, educational, and clinical capacities to demonstrate the value of incorporating psychological knowledge and insight into medical training and care of geriatric patients. With a multidisciplinary panel of expert authors, this unprecedented book includes direct physician-psychologist communication, a model, itself, for integrated healthcare. Contributors will include leading doctors of psychology with proven expertise in elder care, a medical school curricula and evaluation authority, medical professionals with expertise in patient-physician communication, including related assessment tool development, implementation, and evaluation, and leading geriatrician clinician educators.

Psychology and Geriatrics outlines a two-step path to integration: a) physicians become more sensitized and equipped with necessary psychological insight to effectively address psychological aspects of health, and b) collaborative efforts expand to include consultations with qualified psychologists to manage specific, non-biomedical, behavioral aspects of care.

  • Illustrates where and how psychologists can assume a more integrated role in addressing the healthcare needs of an older and more discerning patient population
  • Addresses decades-long barriers to integration, from both physician and psychologist perspectives, suggesting how they may finally be overcome and why the time is now
  • Provides a direct response to medical education’s added attention to psychological, behavioral, and social sciences

Book Description Elsevier Science Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Psychology and Geriatrics demonstrates the value of integrating psychological knowledge and insight with medical training and geriatric care. Leading physician and geropsychologist contributors come together to share their collective wisdom about topics that are as emotionally uncomfortable as they are universally relevant. As the world struggles to respond to unprecedented gains in life expectancy and an explosion of new retirees living with chronic health conditions, this collaboration could not be more timely. This exceptional resource is, itself, evidence that physicians and psychologists can work together to optimize truly patient-centered geriatric care. Here at last is a scientifically rigorous, evidence-based response to the aging mind and body from those most expertly trained. * Illustrates why and how psychologists must assume a more integrated role in meeting the health care needs of older patients* Confronts emotionally laden topics such as cognitively impaired driving, caregiver burden, end-of-life communication, suicide, and systemic issues such as bias, payment, and the culture of medicine* Challenges decades-long barriers to integration, from both physician and psychologist perspectives, suggesting how they can finally be overcome* Provides an innovative, practical response to academic medicine s growing emphasis on psychological and behavioral science* Demonstrates how health care reform creates a behavioral health niche that clinical psychologists are uniquely qualified to fill.
