As the population of aged people increases throughout the world, the need for comprehensive, integrated geriatric care is rapidly becoming a high priority. Developed from an education program in clinical geriatrics offered through the Division on Aging of the Harvard Medical School, this authoritative text provides broad, interdisciplinary coverage of geriatric health care. The book incorporates the theory and skill needed for many disciplines to work together effectively. It integrates the various topics covered by way of section introductions, cross-references within chapters, a case study and case conference, and an introductory chapter of discussions among a panel of aged people. With contributions from a wide range of experts, this book teaches an interdisciplinary perspective on the aged and their health care, and examines the working relationships among the many professions providing care for the aged.show more
