About this title:

Oxford Medical Handbooks

With an ageing population, geriatric medicine is increasingly central to emergency and internal medicine in hospital settings and in general practice. 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. Using clinical vignettes and how-to boxes to provide practical advice on common problems, the Oxford Handbook in Geriatric Medicine is a practical, accessible and essential handbook for all medical staff who manage older patients.

This new edition has been expanded and updated to reflect the substantial changes in clinical practice since the previous edition, including the Francis report and the impact on care for the older patient, the National Dementia Strategy and screening, and the evolution of the role of Geriatricians in other specialities. It includes new material on risk-scoring management of TIA, and a new chapter on the older surgical patient.

Key features:

  • An accessible, hands-on guide to the care of the older patient to steer the clinician safely through day-to-day geriatric practice
  • Provides guidance on the ethical and clinical dilemmas common to geriatric practice
  • Includes 'Clinical vignettes' and 'How to...' boxes providing practical advice on common problems
  • Takes a problem-based approach to assist the clinician in tackling scenarios where the diagnosis may not be clear
  • Filled with clear diagrams, facts boxes, flowcharts and tables for easy assimilation of essential information

New to this edition:

  • Thoroughly revised to include the most recent clinical guidance and advice
  • Increased use of 'How to...' boxes throughout to provide concise practical advice
  • Contains a brand-new chapter on peri-operative medicine and new material on changing models of care, screening, risk-scoring management of TIA, and the Francis Report

“...Packed with clinical tips and case examples to help put knowledge into practice, [...] this comprehensive handbook is well worth the investment and lends itself to being used in day-to-day clinical practice.” - A Illsley, British Journal of Hospital Medicine

Editors: Lesley K Bowker, James D Price, Kunal S Shah, and Sarah C Smith
