Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics

Front Cover
McGraw-Hill, Incorporated, Health Professions Division, 1994 - Aging - 542 pages
The third edition of the highly acclaimed Essentials of Clinical Geriatrics gives you clear guidelines on diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care of all common geriatric disorders. Plus, you'll review important nonclinical issues, including environmental factors, documentation issues, ethics, and demographics. At the heart of the text is its problem-based approach to diagnosis and its succinct, but complete, review of management strategies. Look for this as you review care of the nursing home patient, incontinence, falls, confusion, long-term care, approach to the patient, and much more. And an appendix of Clinical Worksheets provides practical advice for data collection.
