Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: Part of the Case Files, series, this book focuses on issues in geriatric care, presenting information characteristic of certain clinical situations and the differential diagnoses that should be considered.
Purpose: As the authors point out, the best educational experience is the bedside, but that does not always provide the breadth of educational material needed by clinicians, so the next best option is the case study and clinical vignette.
Audience: The primary audience is clinicians in training and those who routinely encounter geriatric patients in their practice. The authors and contributors all are experienced clinicians who bring a wealth of diversity to the book.
Features: The book has two main sections: "How to Approach Clinical Problems" and "Clinical Cases." In the first section, the authors work through the basic history interview, physical examination, and how to choose ancillary testing. There is an excellent description of how to organize one's problem solving skills, formulate a differential diagnosis, use clinical thinking, and research the answer. The clinical cases in the second sections are well presented and illustrate the teaching points in a succinct manner.
Assessment: As a book that provokes thinking and the development of critical skills, this is an excellent contribution to the medical literature. It is an excellent tool for medical students and residents in training to help them hone their critical thinking skills.
