This case-based approach to geriatric medicine is suitable for all health professionals and trainees who provide care for the elderly, including interns, residents, geriatric fellows, physicians in practice, and nurse practitioners. Illustrated with more than 40 cases based on the authors' experience in clinical practice, the examples range from the healthy elderly to those with advanced cognitive or physical impairments. Discussions are evidence-based with extensive references, emphasizing differential diagnosis, atypical presentations in late life, age-appropriate medical management, interdisciplinary methods and care in the context of different health care settings. The authors have distilled a wealth of practical and clinical experience in this area to produce a user-friendly guide to geriatric medicine. This is the ideal study guide for certifying examinations and highly suitable as a textbook for courses in geriatric medicine and gerontology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Text for Medical School Geriatrics Rotation March 9 2010
By Indoctorinated - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book during my geriatrics rotation, and it was exactly what I needed. At 300 pages, the book can easily be read cover to cover during a four week rotation. It covered all of the major medical (including psychiatric) and social issues that commonly come up while seeing geriatric patients. Each chapter begins with a case, asks you questions about the case, and then discusses the answers. Some of these topics aren't discussed in a regular medicine text, such as how to deal with a patient who is a bad driver and lacks insight.

Even in the chapters that cover common medical problems, the authors bring potential geriatrics-specific issues to your attention. For example, they mention that thyroid disease is commonly asymptomatic in older people, and that TSH screening is often required because there may not be much in the way of clinical findings. They also give suggestions for overcoming social issues, such as lack of ability to pay for treatment and refusal to use a cane to prevent falling.

This book isn't part of the Case Files series, but if you liked Case Files, you will like this book also.
