Geriatric Medicine: an evidence-based approach 1st Edition

 Geriatrics  Comments Off on Geriatric Medicine: an evidence-based approach 1st Edition
Nov 122022
 

People are living longer and the population over the age of 60 is burgeoning, with repercussions for health services and healthcare expenditure in developed countries. Crucially, disease aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment in older people differ from the general adult population. Older people often have complicated co-morbidities and respond to treatment in different ways compared to younger people. Evidence of efficacy of different treatments is often lacking because older people are under-represented in clinical trials, and the specific needs of older people are rarely discussed specifically in more general texts. Geriatric medicine: an evidence based approach is a clinical reference for health care professionals who manage older patients, and summarizes up-to-date research literature in a style that can be directly applied by busy healthcare professionals and provide a useful resource for reference.

Geriatric Psychodermatology: Psychocutaneous Disorders in the Elderly (Geriatrics, Gerontology and Elderly Issues) 1st Edition

 Dermatology, Geriatrics  Comments Off on Geriatric Psychodermatology: Psychocutaneous Disorders in the Elderly (Geriatrics, Gerontology and Elderly Issues) 1st Edition
Nov 062022
 

The interaction between mind and skin diseases is the focus in psychodermatology. This important subspecialty is the result of the merging of two major medical specialties: psychiatry and dermatology. Research and existing publications in this field are mainly focused on the general population. The increase in life expectation and the increasing number of elderly individuals worldwide is making the geriatrics specialty more and more important. “Geriatric psychodermatology” is a combination of three medical specialties: Geriatrics, Psychiatry and Dermatology. The natural aging changes that occur in the skin can be a psychological challenge for many individuals, as well as various psychodermatological disorders pertaining to the elderly population, causing significant psychological and physical distress and impacting quality of life. This is the first book ever published about this unexplored and eminent topic. This book presents a new perspective of known psychodermatological diseases in elderly populations. Psychological implications, impact on quality of life and holistic and integrated management of psychocutaneous diseases are the main focus of this book. The authors invite you to explore the geriatric psychodermatology field.

Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine 3e (Oxford Medical Handbooks) 3rd Edition

 Geriatrics  Comments Off on Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine 3e (Oxford Medical Handbooks) 3rd Edition
Oct 182022
 

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

“The book gives a very good overview of the main and most common areas of elderly care … it has a really good, user-friendly layout and covers a wide range of conditions in a simplified way.” — BMA reviewing panel, BMA Medical Book Awards 2019

“… 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

In an ageing population, geriatric medicine has become central to general practice, and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. 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. Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine includes all the information required to deliver effective geriatric care. Guidance is given on a range of key treatment areas,
indicating where practice differs from that of younger adults or is ill informed by evidence, where dangers lurk for the inexperienced clinician, and on the many ethical and clinical dilemmas common in geriatric practice. This accessible handbook is essential reading for all junior doctors and
specialist trainees in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, and for all medical and nursing staff who manage older people.
