Product Description

From the Back Cover

The era of therapeutic nihilism in dementia has ended, with theemergence of agents for symptomatic treatment, those that delay thecourse of the disease or prevent the onset of dementia, and newmethods to manage symptoms. With the expansion of therapies, thereis a clear danger of being overwhelmed by the volume of data.

This book is designed to collect this information, distil whatis relevant and reliable, and present it in a format that is usefulto clinicians who manage and treat people with dementia. It bringstogether the latest and best evidence on all aspects of the diseaseand its management, from diagnosis and therapy to social andethical considerations.

There are no other books that take such a practical andproblem–oriented or approach to the diagnosis and management ofdementia. Furthermore none but this can be described as beingtruely evidence–based.

The editors are all dynamic clinicians involved in the care ofpatients with dementia and the evaluation of therapies. Two of theeditors are the leaders of the Cochrane Collaboration for theexamination of therapies for dementia.

Under-rated but greatly valued! 26 Mar. 2006
By mmartin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I bought this in 2001 and have never regretted it. The problem with most books is that they rest on the validity of the authors opinions. Here we finally have a book that looks for the evidence before making recommendations. Anyone interested in the science behind clinical decisions in dementia has to buy this. Great!
