This second edition continues its mission of improving practical, clinical knowledge among physicians and others caring for elderly people, while providing updated information on several major areas in the field. Reflecting current practice trends, a new chapter on home care has been added as well as one on comprehensive geriatric assessment. Revised guidelines for falls, incontinence, and drug treatment are also featured. Designed to provide both quick reference to clinical problem-solving schemes and lists, as well as a lucid, readable discussion of basic topics in geriatrics, the books value lies in its combination of brief, readily understandable chapters, a section of notes in outline form, straightforward clinical approaches, didactic exercises, and new updated case studies. Family physicians, primary care internists, and other primary specialists caring for elderly people will thus find the book of great value. It also belongs on the shelf of residents, and individual health care professionals, as well as in nursing homes, hospitals, where it will serve as a clinical reference guide.
