There is no doubt that the need for a multidisciplinary cadre of informed and skilled health professionals in geriatrics is growing as the population ages. This book was developed as a response to that need and is designed to assist health care professionals in locating some of the best materials in geriatrics available in the various disciplines. The annotations found in this volume are written clearly and concisely so that the reader can quickly grasp the essence of each reference. The book is organized into two sections, the first of which identifies resources for specific health care disciplines, and the second focuses on resources in health care issues that cut across all disciplines. Specifically, Section I (Geriatrics in the Health Care Disciplines) provides annotations for most major health care disciplines. Section II (Special Issues in Geriatric Health Care) includes ethnic and minority health issues in aging, geriatric care and older women, medical ethics in geriatrics, and new reimbursement systems for medical care for the elderly. Each chapter has been compiled by experienced geriatric professionals who are trained and actively practice in the discipline they cover. This book will be a useful tool for health practitioners, educators, and researchers involved in promoting geriatric education and quality clinical care of older adults.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The authors direct their bibliography toward health educators developing new curricula and practitioners treating the elderly, but they also provide a source useful to all who are interested in the increasingly important topic of the health of older persons. The book includes 914 annotated references divided into 12 chapters, 8 of which focus on geriatric health care in specific areas: dentistry, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, psychology/psychiatry, podiatry, and rehabilitative medicine. The other four discuss special issues: ethnic and minority health concerns, geriatric care and older women, medical ethics in geriatrics, and new reimbursement systems for medical care for the elderly. Most chapters are divided into separate sections for journals, books and book chapters, and major journal articles and reports. Specialists in the particular subject areas have selected the entries to provide a broad overview of the best resources in each area. The annotations are typically a paragraph in length and are clearly written. General bibliographies in gerontology often have sections on health from their particular perspectives, e.g., D.K. Harris's The Sociology of Aging, W.M. Edward's Gerontology, or D.L. Hawley's Women and Aging. This volume, however, fills the need for a specific and concise guide to the literature of geriatric health. Both author and subject indexes. Recommended for college and university libraries."-Choice

"What is catalogued in this annotated bibliography includes books, articles, annual reviews, journals, and even other bibliographies. Both author and subject indexes are provided. To the credit of the chapter and book compilers, the annotations which I looked at seemed quite factually accurate and unbiased. The dozen chapters cover topics such as dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, podiatry, rehabilitation, nursing, psychology, ethnic and minority issues, women, ethics, and reimbursement. . . This work should prove useful for students and professionals. . ."-Clinical Gerontologist
