Geriatric medicine is an emerging field in the U.S., Canada, and Europe with Asia following not too far behind. And as the aging population increases worldwide, the field will continue to grow in importance. Keeping pace with this rapidly expanding field, Clinical Geriatrics provides the basic principles of geriatric medicine, including important aspects of patient evaluation and management in the hospital, nursing home, home, and other community settings. Unique in its simplicity of style, the book is based on material derived from standard international journals and the experience of the contributors. It presents information in an easy-to-find and easy-to-understand format, yet does not oversimplify the subject. The editors also cover topics not commonly found in texts on geriatrics including vitamin B12 deficiency, HIV disease in the elderly, and cutaneous skin infections. The combination of authoritative information and convenient format make Clinical Geriatrics the definitive text for teaching geriatric medicine and the ideal reference for primary health care providers.
