From the Back Cover:

Evidence-Based Geriatric Medicine provides non-geriatrician clinicians with an approach to topics central to the care of the older patient.   These include the diagnosis and management of ‘the geriatric giants’ (delirium, dementia, urinary incontinence and falls), pressure ulcers, elder abuse and end of life care. This new book in the Evidence-Based series includes specific age-related conditions while providing a holistic approach to the older patient. Geriatric Medicine specialists with expertise in both their specific topics as well as in evidence-based medicine present the best-available evidence in a concise, easy-to-use, question-and-answer based format.  Each chapter includes common questions that are asked by clinicians, and the answers focus on a systematic review of the evidence and conclude with a bottom line for clinical practice.

 

  • A unique guide to the optimum care of older patients
  • Focuses on the best available evidence
  • Uses rigorous and transparent methods for seeking and appraising the evidence
  • Provides the evidence in a clinically useful format

This book is an invaluable resource for trainees and clinicians from various disciplines, worldwide. It addresses an issue of global importance – building the capacity to care for older persons.
