Health Care for Older People: Management in General Practice by Steve Iliffe
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This practical guide addresses the health-care needs of older people, within the wide contexts that affect so significantly their physical well-being. Advocating a multidisciplinary approach to care of older people, this work addresses the need for, and practicalities of, a team-based approach to their care. Changes in primary and secondary health-care policy are discussed, and account rationing and delivery of care implications are taken into account. The authors, three respected primary-care physicians, use case studies to illustrate the typical and not-so-typical challenges in caring for older people. A range of practical solutions are discussed.
