Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine free pdf In an ageing population, geriatric medicine has become central to general practice, and to emergency and general internal medicine in the hospital setting. Diseases are more common in the older person, and can be particularly difficult to assess and to treat effectively in a field that has limited evidence, yet makes up a substantial proportion of the work of most clinicians. Fully updated, this second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Geriatric Medicine includes all the information required to deliver effective geriatric care. Guidance is given on a range of key treatment areas, indicating where practice differs from that of younger adults or is ill informed by evidence, where dangers lurk for the inexperienced clinician, and on the many ethical and clinical dilemmas common in geriatric practice. This accessible handbook is essential reading for all junior doctors and specialist trainees in geriatric medicine and general internal medicine, and for all medical and nursing staff who manage older people.

About Lesley Bowker

Dr Lesley Bowker qualified in 1990 from Southampton, completing further training in Wessex (SHO and registrar jobs) and Oxford (senior registrar) followed by a year in Perth, Australia as a senior lecturer. She was a 'career geriatrician' from early days and developed a research interest in practical clinical ethics especially relating to older people. Her DM thesis (awarded from Southampton in 2003) was in the practical and ethical issues surrounding life-sustaining treatment in the elderly person. Her consultant appointment at Norwich in 2002 allows her to combine clinical work with education as the clinical skills director for the school of medicine at UEA. She obtained her Masters in Clinical Education in 2011. Dr Sarah Smith trained at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, qualifying in 1994. She went on to do house jobs and an SHO rotation at her training hospital, which is where she developed an interest in geriatric medicine. After an ITU post in Brighton, she joined the SpR training scheme for geriatrics and GIM in the Oxford region, completing in 2003. Dr Smith was appointed as a consultant in Community Geriatrics and GIM for the Oxford University Hospitals in 2004, and her main interests are the acute/community interface, stroke rehabilitation and clinical governance.
