Overview

The most complete, authoritative guide available on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders affecting the elderly — updated with a new global perspective

A Doody's Core Title for 2011!

"In addition to serving as a timely, comprehensive, state-of-the-art textbook of geriatric medicine anchored in science, evidence-based medicine, and patient-centered practice, the book also is intended to meet the learning needs of fellows in geriatric medicine. The authors succeed in modeling a textbook of geriatric medicine on textbooks of internal medicine. 3 Stars."—Doody's Review Service

The undisputed leader on the subject of geriatrics, this comprehensive guide combines gerontology principles with clinical geriatrics offering unmatched coverage of this area of medicine.

Written by some of the world's most respected geriatricians, Hazzard's Principles of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology presents the most up-to-date, evidence-based medical information available — in a revamped 2-color design that makes finding the answers to your questions faster and easier than ever.

Features:

  • A greater emphasis on evidence-based medicine through the expanded use of Clinical Practice Guidelines and references to systematic reviews and critically appraised topics
  • A new international advisory board of 12 global authorities and an increased number of international contributors for a greater global perspective
  • Important new chapters on the cultural aspects of geriatrics, emergency geriatrics, hospital geriatrics, international geriatric care, and rural geriatric care
  • Information integrated with additional online resources
  • Tables, drawings, and clinical algorithms made even more effective by a new two-color design
  • 300 illustrations (including 64 in a full-color insert)

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is the sixth edition of a multiauthored comprehensive textbook of geriatric medicine. For the first time, this edition is also available in a digital version. It replaces the fifth edition of 2003.
Purpose: In addition to serving as a timely, comprehensive, state-of-the-art textbook of geriatric medicine anchored in science, evidence-based medicine, and patient-centered practice, the book also is intended to meet the learning needs of fellows in geriatric medicine. The authors succeed in modeling a textbook of geriatric medicine on textbooks of internal medicine.
Audience: The audience is geriatricians in practice and in training. With this edition, the former chief editor and the book's namesake, Dr. Hazzard, has passed the baton to his colleagues. The authors are all leading experts in the field.
Features: The 130 chapters are grouped into four parts covering principles of gerontology, principles of geriatrics, geriatric syndromes, and organ systems and diseases. The numerous tables, diagrams, and algorithms helpfully make important information stand out. This edition is not as well edited as previous editions. There are some grammatical errors, an inconsistent style of citations, and a great variability in the number of references for further reading at the end of the chapters.
Assessment: This book, which calls itself an icon, has been a leader in the field. The emphasis on the science and the emulation of internal medicine textbooks will make the online version especially valuable. A chapter on driving, which is influenced by aging and diseases and is a common topic in other leading textbooks of geriatric medicine, might be a useful addition in future revisions. As we approach the time when all leaders in geriatric medicine will be fellowship-trained, the relationship of geriatrics and gerontology will evolve.
