The third edition of this well-established textbook covering all aspects of gerontology has been radically restructured so that core information can be found more easily by the reader. Only the key issues and most common conditions and problems for this patient group are focused on, making this a core textbook on geriatrics. New to this edition are separate sections on core medicine in old age and a section on self-assessment. Also throughout the text themes such as case vignettes and evidence-based practice points are used to highlight clinical issues.
