MIMS Handbook of Geriatric Medicine

Image Placeholder (available July 2017).Geriatric medicine is a speciality that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. Geriatric medicine often leads to the interdisciplinary care of older people. Most of the ageing population reside in the community and require the services of a general practitioner or specialist.
Only when individuals are no longer able to maintain their independence do they move on to a supportive environment. As people are living longer, geriatric medicine, which addresses the inevitable, irreversible decline in organ function that occurs over time even in the absence of injury, illness or poor lifestyle choices, is one of the fastest growing medical industries in the world.

Experts from hospitals, universities and private practice countrywide have contributed articles on what they consider to be the most important diseases and conditions in the elderly, e.g., cardiovascular disease, endocrine failure, neuropsychiatric disorders, lung conditions, musculoskeletal conditions and pain, auditory and visual impairment and so on. The concise readable format – with appropriate figures and tables – makes the MIMS Handbook of Geriatric Medicine an easy-to-use, valuable reference. The CPD component, comprising questions and a score-sheet booklet, will contain multiple-choice questions related to the treatment articles, and can earn doctors CPD points.
