In an ageing world, the delivery of psychogeriatric services in an effective and efficient manner is an increasing concern for health service providers and administrators in both developed and developing countries. Despite awareness of the anticipated mental health needs of the ageing population, services for older people have been slow to develop in many places, and in some places do not exist at all. This volume brings together the theory and practice of psychogeriatric service delivery from an international perspective. It examines the range of different service models, perspectives and ideas with the evidence-base for each, providing a unique resource for those planning and administering psychogeriatric services. The first section of the book discusses the theory behind psychogeriatric service delivery, including its history, service delivery principles, needs analysis, population-based service planning, economics and funding, and evidence-based service delivery. Section two concentrates on practice, describing examples of service delivery from a number of European, American, African, Asian and Australasian settings. The third section focuses on solutions, evaluating the range of delivery settings and considering the needs of both consumers and carers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a good book. It addresses its massive, serious, still-unfashionable, but important topic with humane sense and balance. It will take the cause several steps forward. * Psychological Medicine, Vol 35 *
In 22 chapters written by 33 contributors, drawn from 15 countries and six continents: this is a truly impressive attempt to capture the current world picture of "Psychogeriatics". This is a good book. It addresses its massive, serious, still-unfashionable, but important topic with humane sense and balance. It will take the cause several steps forward. * Psychological Medicine, Vol 35 *
Psychogeriatics is in its infancy as a discipline. As the population of the world ages, further problems regarding the delivery of mental healthcare will emerge. The authors and editors of this book are visionaries. They explore the current knowledge about delivery of care and integrate it to provide possible solutions for future generations * Doody's Journal *
