    DescriptionNow greatly expanded and completely updated Practical Psychiatry of Old Age Fourth Edition is ideal as a clinical primer for those in training or as a day to day reference for healthcare professionals working with older people. The book describes in detail the main psychiatric conditions encountered in old age and their management with many useful brief case histories to illustrate the practical realities of working in this area. In addition it offers a comprehensive approach to the assessment and management of psychiatric disorders in old age and provides an introduction to the development and management of services. It supports a truly multi-disciplinary approach in line with modern developments including the new government guidelines on older people's mental health services. Key reviews of the Third Edition: 'I can relate this work to many patients that I have cared for in A&E. I enjoyed this book it's nicely formatted and a good read.' ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY NURSING 'The book has many strengths. It highlights complicated interactions between psychological biological and social constructs in explaining for example links between depression and physical disorder and the importance of the development of relationships with patients who have multiple needs. The book is well-supported with up-to-date literature. It is highly accessible and will inform the practise of allied professionals working with older people.' NURSING AND RESIDENTIAL CARE 'This text offers a useful review of old age psychiatry.' FAMILY PRACTICE 'This easy-to-read book is very up to date. The case history examples help to make this book a very valuable practical and accessible reference for any health professional - from consultant to student in all fields of care - working with older people with mental health problems.'

    Review quote
    'In its fifth edition, it was first published more than 30 years ago, when old-age psychiatry was establishing itself as a discrete speciality. It is described as 'a book light enough to read for pleasure but heavy enough to be used as a clinican's main textbook' and I would concur with that. It is a useful update to literature on this subject and should be of interest to individuals working in this field.' Claire Chatterton, staff tutor, faculty of health and social care, The Open University, UK, Nursing Older People Journal
