Welcome to Geriatrics (Paperback)
Welcome to geriatrics ...
We live in a fascinating world where the care of elder patients is becoming more prevalent than ever before.
These student notes are short summaries of pertinent topics in geriatrics, specifically elaborating on common day-to-day conditions encountered in the field such as dementia, delirium, polypharmacy and falls. There is also input from members of the multidisciplinary team, such as speech therapy, dietetics and physiotherapy.
The format is practical and easy to read. The content is structured to serve a spectrum of health care workers such as general practitioners, primary care workers, medical students, front line workers, allied health care workers and all other members of the geriatric multi-disciplinary team. Welcome to Geriatrics is the ideal stepping stone into the world of elder care.
The aim of these student notes is to allow the field of geriatrics to become accessible to a wider field of members of our society, academics and non-academics living and working with our precious elderly.
