Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center)
Description: This is a multiauthored book about interdisciplinary care of older persons based on a conference in 1996.
Purpose: The purpose is to demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of caring for older persons and to demonstrate the spectrum of this care.
Audience: The audience for this book is geriatricians, gerontologists, other healthcare professionals working with older persons, and policy makers.
Features: This book is fairly textually oriented.
Assessment: While the contributors do represent the spectrum of professionals caring for older persons, most of the discussion is from the individual contributor's area of expertise. On the whole, this book is tedious with little to glue the chapters together.
