People are living longer and the population over the age of 60 is burgeoning, with repercussions for health services and healthcare expenditure in developed countries. Crucially, disease aetiology, diagnosis, and treatment in older people differ from the general adult population. Older people often have complicated co-morbidities and respond to treatment in different ways compared to younger people. Evidence of efficacy of different treatments is often lacking because older people are under-represented in clinical trials, and the specific needs of older people are rarely discussed specifically in more general texts. Geriatric medicine: an evidence based approach is a clinical reference for health care professionals who manage older patients, and summarizes up-to-date research literature in a style that can be directly applied by busy healthcare professionals and provide a useful resource for reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Each chapter is succinct enough to provide an excellent overview of evidence and a platform for further reading. I have come away with a list of papers that I wish to read, and the book has challenged some of my understandings of clinical practice, service development and research. The book moves geriatric medicine beyond Isaacas agiantsa and asimply caring for the elderlya, into a complex and subtle specialty, backed by a wealth of evidence. * British Geriatrics Society *
This is a unique and clearly an important addition to the overall knowledge and understanding of geriatric medicine. It is a significant addition for every academic library. * Doody's Notes *
