Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: MaryBeth Tank Buschmann, RNC, PhD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing)
Description: This book is a compendium of papers presented at a 1994 conference on depression in the elderly. It is organized into three parts, based on the research literature. The first part describes depression in the elderly, the second part discusses treatment, and the last part presents implications for policy and future research in depression of the elderly in long-term care.
Purpose: The chapters are based on the papers presented at the conference for practitioners and researchers. This information is of utmost importance in the understanding and treatment of depressed elders. The sponsor hopes that the book will be used to improve the lives of our elderly.
Audience: The editors do not specifically target their audience. However, it is apparent that the book is designed for practitioners and researchers in the field of long-term care and geriatric mental health. The contributors are on the cutting edge of this topic and their references reflect the same.
Features: The illustrations are black-and-white tables, graphs, and diagrams, which are informative though not particularly esthetic. The references are ample and current as of the time of the conference. Even though the most current reference is now three years old, the information is still of great value. A subject index is included.
Assessment: This is an excellent book that addresses a condition often overlooked, ignored, misdiagnosed, underdiagnosed, undertreated, or mistreated as an expectation of old age. Few people understand how health professionals care for depressed elderly people. The information given in this book is timely and urgently needed.
