Features: The exhaustive and complete reference list about all aspects of health promotion and disease prevention and an extensive summary table set this monograph apart from others on the subject.

After theoretical discussions and critiques, there is an exhaustive presentation and summary reviewing health prevention practices and methods for older persons.
