Review

From the Third Edition: "The third edition ¿covers basic gerontoloic concepts, contexts of care, clinical approaches to the geriatric patient, medical disorders, and ethics and health policy¿consistent effort throughout the chapters to address how the site of care, coexisting conditions and the health status of the patient influence management. The book offers an approach to serving as a knowledgeable advocate for older adults, ranging from the vigorous 80-year-old in whom prevention and assertive intervention may be appropriate to the elderly person who is dying and needs a provider with extensive skills in comfort care and communication with patients. Other perspectives unique to geriatrics are demonstrated in chapters on the determination of decision-making capacity, screening for cancer, nutrition, and pain management. Geriatrics is and will continue to be a predominant part of the daily practice of most generalists. I recommend [this book] for thoughtful reading about rational and compassionate management of geriatric problems." -- New England Journal of Medicine --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
