Demographic changes make the care of the elderly an increasing part of the practice of medicine. Along with this shift, medical teaching now places greater emphasis on primary care where the problems of the elderly predominate. The fourth edition of Medicine in Old Age takes into account developments and changes both in the care of the elderly and the teaching of medical students. Completely rewritten and presented in an entirely new format this book is a concise account of aspects of the medicine of old age that tend not to be addressed in texbooks of general internal medicine. Features: * Entirely new format and design * Greater use of graphics to present information * Key point boxes * Text entirely re-written to reflect both changes in the subject and the way medical students learn
