This new edition of Brocklehurst's Textbook of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology builds on the structure and content of previous editions. Four sections cover gerontology, clinical geriatric medicine, problem-based geriatrics, and health systems and geriatric medicine. The most important feature of this new edition is the increased emphasis on clinical practice - practicing geriatricians will be able to turn to Brocklehurst's Sixth Edition and easily find the answer to both common and rarer clinical problems.

  • Summary boxes at the end of each chapter highlight key points.
  • Investigations for specific disorders are summarized in either table form or flow chart.
  • Management of illness is emphasized with further recommendations. "Summary of Management Options" boxes indicate management plans.
  • Includes a chapter on technology and the future.
New chapters on: Productive Aging, Successful Aging, Depression, Alzheimer's Disease, Vascular Dementia, Techniques and Therapy of Rehabilitation, and Managed Care.
