Description - Geriatric Medicine for Old-Age Psychiatrists by Alistair S. Burns

Geriatric medicine and old age psychiatry interface in a variety of ways, but with old age psychiatry becoming an increasing specialization, it is likely that clinicians in that discipline will not have had the advantage of exposure to general medicine -- whether that be hospital-based geriatric medicine or general practice. However, the current practice of old age psychiatry dictates that an awareness of common physical problems and how they affect older people is a useful skill to have in communicating with colleagues in geriatric medicine and primary care, and also in terms of improved treatment for patients. Filling a gap in the market for a text uniting these two important fields, "Geriatric Medicine for Old-Age Psychiatrists" presents an up-to-date digest of current medical problems in the area. Providing guidance for the first line of patient management, the book concentrates upon common conditions and includes a number of helpful case vignettes. Written primarily by an experienced geriatrician, and informed by an old-age psychiatrist, this innovative text has a unique combination of author perspectives which come together to produce a valuable and insightful text.
