Geriatrics: Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference covers assessment and treatment of a multitude of rehabilitation issues as they uniquely affect older adults and the elderly. Organised in three sections, the first part is devoted to examination, evaluation and testing, and system-related problems of normal ageing due to disuse and deconditioning.
The second section catalogues the full range of diseases and disorders commonly encountered in this population both by organ system and disease classification, including cancer and cardiovascular disease, depression, musculoskeletal, rheumatologic, and neurologic problems, and impairments related to vision and hearing. The concluding section focuses on special topics such as pain management, pharmacology, rehabilitation settings, and end of life care. Geriatrics is an essential volume for busy clinicians who provide rehabilitative care to older patients in any setting.
