The book thoroughly explores clinical aspects, as well as demographic, statistical, legal and ethical areas relating to health and social services used by older people. There are entirely new chapters on elder abuse, alcohol and drug abuse and HIV, infection control and other essential topics. With two thirds of its content either completely new or thoroughly updated, this book remains an invaluable ready reference for doctors, nurses and all health professionals involved in geriatrics and general medicine in hospital and community settings. It is also a vital revision text for general practitioners and clinical assistants, as it reflects the syllabus framework of the Diploma in Geriatric Medicine. Geriatric medicine is complex, like our patients.
