Geriatrics continues to become a more central and vital component of primary care medicine, making it more important than ever that all providers of geriatric medical care maintain continuous awareness of the principles of geriatrics. PRIMARY CARE GERIATRICS: A CASE-BASED APPROACH provides the principles and key clinical information necessary to ensure the optimal management of elderly patients. Case studies are integrated throughout the text to provide illustrative patient scenarios. The book is divided into three parts: the first outlines the principles of geriatric primary care and the characteristics of older persons from which these principles arise; the second provides detailed, case-based approaches to major geriatric syndromes; and the third section is a presentation of common conditions and situations. Long acknowledged as one of the most practical, user-friendly texts available, this new edition features revised content reflecting the latest advances in the field.
