Summary
Routinely cited in reviews as the geriatrics book nonpareil, this book is now in its sixth edition, complete with updated content and a total design overhaul that makes easier than ever to read and navigate. Its main focus of blending gerontology principles with clinical geriatrics, however, is unchanged. This brand-new package, authored by the world's best geriatricians (with more internationally based contributors than ever), contains a number of changes. Evidence-based medicine is emphasized via the expanded use of clinical practice guidelines, as well as reference to systematic reviews and critically appraised topics. A new chapter on international geriatric care has also been added. Meanwhile, tables, drawings, and clinical algorithms have been enhanced by the new color format, and all content on Geriatric Syndromes have been placed up front
