Overview

As the population of aged people increases throughout the world, the need for comprehensive, integrated geriatric care is rapidly becoming a high priority. Developed from an education program in clinical geriatrics offered through the Division on Aging of the Harvard Medical School, this authoritative text provides broad, interdisciplinary coverage of geriatric health care. The book incorporates the theory and skill needed for many disciplines to work together effectively. It integrates the various topics covered by way of section introductions, cross-references within chapters, a case study and case conference, and an introductory chapter of discussions among a panel of aged people. With contributions from a wide range of experts, this book teaches an interdisciplinary perspective on the aged and their health care, and examines the working relationships among the many professionals providing care for the aged.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book attempts to describe the interdisciplinary nature of caring for older persons and the nature of interdisciplinary teams.
Purpose: The three-fold purpose of this book is to provide substantial information on aging and health care of older persons for each member of an interdisciplinary team, to present an integrated model of health care for older persons by an interdisciplinary team, and to demonstrate how interdisciplinary teams ought to work.
Audience: The audience includes members of interdisciplinary teams.
Features: This book features case studies with comments from all team members and individual chapters from various disciplines about health care of older persons.
Assessment: The information provided is too superficial and presented in too simplistic a manner to achieve the integration called for in the book's objectives. There is not a clear carryover from the case presentations to the didactic material and examples of interdisciplinary function.
