Beschrijving
This new edition of the Oxford Handbook in Geriatric Medicine has been expanded and updated to reflect the substantial changes in clinical practice since the previous edition, including the Francis report and the impact on care for the older patient, the National Dementia Strategy and screening, and the evolution of the role of Geriatricians in other specialities. It includes new material on risk scoring management of TIA, and a new chapter on the older surgical patient. With an ageing population, geriatric medicine is increasingly central to emergency and internal medicine in hospital settings and in general practice. Diseases are more common in the older person, and can be particularly difficult to assess and to treat effectively in a field that has limited evidence, yet makes up a substantial proportion of the work of most clinicians. Using clinical vignettes and how-to boxes to provide practical advice on common problems, this is a practical, accessible, and essential handbook for all medical staff who manage older patients.

Review
...this is a brilliantly crafted book and a wonderful contribution to the field. * Doody's Notes (from a review of the previous edition) * All physicians who treat older people must have geriatric expertise. It goes without saying that internists, hospital doctors and GPs need easy access to geriatric knowledge, but also surgeons, neurologists, rheumatologists, and other specialists who encounter older patients should know something about the special challenges regarding elderly health and disease, clinical, ethical and practical. The target group is therefore most hospital doctors and all general practitioners sturdy, handheld book like this - along with the online encyclopedia - provides flexible and customized access to the knowledge, advice and guidance. * Tidsskrift for Den norske legeforening, Feb 2013 * This is a thoughtful and challenging book that is very serious reading for clinicians who frequently encounter elderly patients in their practice. * Doody's Notes, Dec 2012 * This is an excellent book. It is succinct yet easy to read ... there are useful little boxes of 'How To's e.g. How To Give Sub-Cut Fluids, Use Digoxin, Assess Depression etc. I thought I know how to do many of these tips but I still found then useful and interesting. This is a useful book for anyone spending time looking after old patients. * BMA Medical Book Competition (from a review of the previous edition) * ... Packed with clinical tips and case examples to help put knowledge into practice, [...] this comprehensive handbook is well worth the investment and lends itself to being used in day-to-day clinical practice. * A Illsley, British Journal of Hospital Medicine *
