Written by a "Geriatrician of the Year," by the American Geriatrics Society, and editof of the Oxford American Handbook of Geriatric Medicine, this handy booklet walks the reader through the essential points of medications and prescribing; functional and cognitive assessment tools; preoperative assessment; delirium management; and pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management of common problems, such as falls, urinary incontinence, constipation, and diarrhea. Check lists of activities for evaluating a patient in the home and useful equations are also included.
