9780443103025: Elderly Medicine: A Training Guide, 2e

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is aimed at the entire training requirements of Specialist Registrars. It covers both the practice of medicine for the elderly and also generic skills required by all doctors at this stage in their training. The emphasis is on practical advice (backed up by evidence where available) on the common problems of the elderly. Chapters end with references, further reading and self-assessment material.

  • Incorporates implications of the National Service Framework for Older People.
  • Chapter on ethics much changed due to: new GMC Guidelines on consent, confidentiality and withholding treatment; new BMA/RCN Guidelines on "do not resuscitate" decisions.
  • New guidelines on stroke, hypertension and osteoporosis incorporated.
  • Major update to bibliography.

Review:

"As the editors of the book point out, nearly two thirds of hospital beds are occupied by the over 65s and there is thus a need for a practical and readable guide to the management of their common medical problems and to the curriculum that the RCP has prepared for Geriatric Medicine. This book fulfils these two objectives admirably. There are 57 separate short chapters covering topics as diverse as “how to unblock a PEG “time management and “professional issues as well as the nuts and bolts of the subject. At the end of each chapter are lists of relevant references and recommended reading as well as some self-assessment questions, the answers to which can be found at the end of the book.
In summary, a useful and eminently practical guide to modern Elderly Medicine that would suit not only the Specialist Registrar but also the General Practitioner, senior nursing staff on hospital wards and in nursing homes."
Univadis Medical Portal - February 2008

“The second edition is a superior product...There is the right depth and breadth here to make this book of value to fellows, students, and residents, and, by all means, to their teachers. This book is written at a level missing in many other books on geriatric medicine, and therefore is well worth your attention.
Doody Enterprises, Inc. July 2008
