In an ageing population, those who specialise in the treatment of older people are more essential than ever. The specialty is also becoming more evidence-based as research into care of the elderly grows. This second edition of Essential Geriatrics has been comprehensively updated and expanded, with entirely new sections on the ageing process and a selection of important topics. In addition there are 100 questions throughout the text in the modern knowledge-based 'best of five' format, with answers. This text specifically focuses on the key aspects of elderly care, spanning both general medicine and the particular problems encountered in geriatrics as a route into the specialty: the subjects chosen typically receive scant coverage in general medical texts. Practical guidance for managing the conditions covered is included at the end of each section, with reasoned approaches to areas where evidence is more scarce. Eloquently describes the knowledge and experience base essential for practitioners of geriatric medicineA" - James George in his Foreword From reviews of the first edition: Strongly recommended to geriatricians of all grades and valuable for all members of the multi-disciplinary team on the shelf of the ward office.
