    DescriptionIn 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.

    Review quote
    This is an excellent book. It is succinct yet easy to read ... there are useful little boxes of 'How To's e.g. How To Give Sub-Cut Fluids, Use Digoxin, Assess Depression etc. I thought I know how to do many of these tips but I still found then useful and interesting. This is a useful book for anyone spending time looking after old patients. BMA Medical Book Competition (from a review of the previous edition) This is a thoughtful and challenging book that is very serious reading for clinicians who frequently encounter elderly patients in their practice. Doody's Notes, Dec 2012 All physicians who treat older people must have geriatric expertise. It goes without saying that internists, hospital doctors and GPs need easy access to geriatric knowledge, but also surgeons, neurologists, rheumatologists, and other specialists who encounter older patients should know something about the special challenges regarding elderly health and disease, clinical, ethical and practical. The target group is therefore most hospital doctors and all general practitioners sturdy, handheld book like this - along with the online encyclopedia - provides flexible and customized access to the knowledge, advice and guidance. Tidsskrift for Den norske legeforening, Feb 2013 ...this is a brilliantly crafted book and a wonderful contribution to the field. Doody's Notes (from a review of the previous edition)
