The fifth edition of this widely used book by caregivers brings to you updated and revised content, built on the basic understanding that medicine does not work in a vacuum, but rather alongside other disciplines to provide the environment for a healthy and fulfilling long life. Edited by alumni and senior faculty at McGill University, with international contributions, this book advocates the achievement of better, longer, satisfying, and more productive lives for older persons. A helpful resource for physicians, professional caregivers, therapists, students, and residents in medical and nursing disciplines, who care for our burgeoning older population, and need to know what to look for and when to consult specialists.
Key Features:
1. Follows a uniform structure with many chapters having a hypothetical vignette for instructional purposes, and the clinical chapters detail the features and diagnosis of given conditions, along with possible management protocols specific to afflicted older individuals.
2. Builds on the success of the previous four editions to provide high-quality content from international experts for physicians and other caregivers in the field.
3. Provides possible management protocols to pressing problems, including the nursing home challenge, pandemics such as COVID, and precision therapy for cancer.
