Product Description


Reviews of previous editions:

′This book is a perfect accompaniment to those "problems of old age" modules that there is never enough time for. The lecture notes series are always good and this is no exception. Straight and to the point without all the waffle.′

Sphincter, Liverpool Medical Students′ Gazette

′The authors... have ensured that the book remains a concise yet remarkably comprehensive guide.′

Cal Review Services 1999

′...the best small book on an enormous subject.′

Modern Geriatrics

Lecture Notes on Geriatrics remains the number one choice for undergraduates and newly qualified doctors alike.′


Published Reviews of the 6th Edition

"Another winner from the lecture notes series, covering all you need to know without the waffle."

5th Year Medical Student Liverpool Medical School, Sphincter, December 2003

"This book appeals straight away because it is thin and refreshingly to the point."

"The best feature of this book is that many social, psychiatricand ethical aspects of geriatric medicine are comprehensively covered without being boring."

"This is an ideal book either to dip in and out of or to read in a longer stretc, as it holds your attention. An added bonus is that the authors clearly have a good sense of humour."

Claire Vandevekde, Queen′s Medical Centre, Nottingham – Hospital Medicine July 2004

From the Back Cover

Since the publication of the first edition of this book over twenty five years ago, geriatric medicine has seen enormous advances. It has become central to general practice and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. With two new authors on the team, the sixth edition has been extensively altered and updated to include the many evidence–based advances in treatment that have occurred. The diseases that afflict older patients are clearly described and the ways in which these patients differ in presentation and management are explained. There are chapters dealing with the social and demographic aspects of ageing and the physiological changes that occur with age. This new edition takes into account the great changes in the organisation of the care of older people and there is a more in–depth chapter on the increasingly important ethical and legal aspects of geriatric practice.

The result is a text that remains the most compact yet comprehensive guide to geriatric medicine. It will appeal to medical students, junior doctors on foundation programmes, general practitioners, nurses, and allied health professionals who want a concise introduction to the subject or an ideal revision companion.

First Sentence
If the 20th century was the period when the Western World turned grey, it is to be hoped that the 21st century will be the time when it wakes up to the new situation and begins to make appropriate plans for services. Read the first page

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A. Joiner on 29 Mar. 2006
Format: Paperback
I have to confess, that I only used four or five chapters from this book, so I am probably not the best person to be reviewing it. The chapters I used were the ones more specific to geriatrics, e.g. falls, palliative care, strokes, etc. The chapters were all succinct and lucid and therefore easy to digest. My biggest qualm was the drab presentation and the over use of bullet points. I don't tend to learn from bullet point as I tend to read them quicker and therefore take less in.
I used this book the day before my exam, and it seemed to provide most of the information that I needed, but not all. Therefore if you are intending to use this as last minute revision, I would recommend it. However, if you after a textbook which is more interesting to read or you have an interest in geriatric medicine, then look elsewhere.
