Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine
Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicineincludes 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.
It includes new material on risk scoring management of TIA, and a new chapter on the older surgical patient.
