Product description


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

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. ―
