The worldwide population of elderly people has increased dramatically in recent years. With this demographic change is an increased awareness of the medical needs and problems specific to elderly patients. Many illnesses are a unique consequence of ageing. Other illnesses, which affect all ages, can be of greater severity or require different medicines or doses in the elderly. Medicines in the Elderly, written by a multidisciplinary group of healthcare experts, is a comprehensive introduction to therapeutics in the elderly. The book discusses drug therapies for diseases affecting the major body systems. Chapters also cover anti-infective therapy, altered drug response, palliative care, compliance, concordance and polypharmacy and research in elderly patients. This book is essential reading for pharmacists, physicians, nurses and pharmacy students, as well as other healthcare professionals specialising in geriatric medicine.
