A problem-oriented approach is particularly relevant to treatment of elderly people who tend to present with multiple diseases and pathology which modify the normal signs of morbidity. This book provides comprehensive coverage of geriatric medicine using this approach; the method has many advantages including consistency of approach to the patient and management, facilitation of comprehensive care, and ease of training for less experienced and general physicians.
