9780199586097: Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine (Oxford Medical Handbooks)

In an ageing population, geriatric medicine has become central to general practice, and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. Diseases are more common in the older person, and can be particularly difficult to assess and to treat effectively in a field that has limited evidence, yet makes up a substantial proportion of the work of most clinicians. Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine includes all the information required to deliver effective geriatric care. Guidance is given on a range of key treatment areas, indicating where practice differs from that of younger adults or is ill informed by evidence, where dangers lurk for the inexperienced clinician, and on the many ethical and clinical dilemmas common in geriatric practice. This accessible handbook is essential reading for all junior doctors and specialist trainees in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, and for all medical and nursing staff who manage older people.

About the Author:


Dr Lesley Bowker qualified in 1990 from Southampton, completing further training in Wessex (SHO and registrar jobs) and Oxford (senior registrar) followed by a year in Perth, Australia as a senior lecturer. She was a 'career geriatrician' from early days and developed a research interest in practical clinical ethics especially relating to the elderly. Her DM thesis (awarded from Southampton in 2003) was in the practical and ethical issues surrounding life-sustaining treatment in the elderly person. Her consultant appointment at Norwich in 2002 allows her to combine clinical work with education as the clinical skills coordinator for the school of medicine at UEA.

Dr Sarah Smith trained at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, qualifying in 1994. She went on to do house jobs and an SHO rotation at her training hospital, which is where she developed an interest in geriatric medicine. After an ITU post in Brighton, she joined the SpR training scheme for geriatrics and GIM in the Oxford region, completing in 2003. After maternity leave, Dr Smith was appointed as a part-time consultant in Community Geriatrics and GIM for the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals. Her area of special interest is stroke.

Review:

...this is a brilliantly crafted book and a wonderful contribution to the field. * Doody's Notes (from a review of the previous edition) * All physicians who treat older people must have geriatric expertise. It goes without saying that internists, hospital doctors and GPs need easy access to geriatric knowledge, but also surgeons, neurologists, rheumatologists, and other specialists who encounter older patients should know something about the special challenges regarding elderly health and disease, clinical, ethical and practical. The target group is therefore most hospital doctors and all general practitioners sturdy, handheld book like this - along with the online encyclopedia - provides flexible and customized access to the knowledge, advice and guidance. * Tidsskrift for Den norske legeforening, Feb 2013 * This is a thoughtful and challenging book that is very serious reading for clinicians who frequently encounter elderly patients in their practice. * Doody's Notes, Dec 2012 * This is an excellent book. It is succinct yet easy to read ... there are useful little boxes of 'How To's e.g. How To Give Sub-Cut Fluids, Use Digoxin, Assess Depression etc. I thought I know how to do many of these tips but I still found then useful and interesting. This is a useful book for anyone spending time looking after old patients. * BMA Medical Book Competition (from a review of the previous edition) *
