The Washington Manual Geriatrics Subspecialty Consult
Kyle Moylan, Tammy L. Lin
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2004 - Medical - 206 pages
This handbook from the Washington University School of Medicine is a practical guide for medical students, residents, and fellows treating older adults. It was prepared by residents and fellows in internal medicine, geriatrics, cardiology, ophthalmology, rheumatology, and urology, with faculty advisors from the Division of Nutrition and Aging. The authors provide a framework for approaching the important issues that arise in geriatrics and focus on key aspects of the evaluation and treatment of common geriatric disorders and consultations.
The book covers symptoms and diseases, acute and chronic problems, and inpatient and outpatient approaches with the same front-lines practicality as the world-famous Washington ManualŪ of Medical Therapeutics. Tables and appendices provide rapid point-of-care access to information such as cognitive and functional assessment tests and important drug interactions.
This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
