pagine: 158

With rapid ageing of the world's population, psychiatry of old age has become a crucial discipline. This succinct guide to the scope and practice of the psychiatry of old age provides an up-to-date summary of existing knowledge, best practice and future challenges for the specialty, from a global perspective. From definitions and demography to epidemiology, aetiology, and principles of assessment, diagnosis and management, each chapter is sharp, clear and practical, enhanced by tables and diagrams for quick assimilation and reference on the ward or in the clinic. As well as the main psychiatric conditions encountered in old age, coverage also includes legal and ethical issues, and the neglected topic of alcohol and drug abuse in the elderly. Written by leading clinicians, teachers and researchers and offering a much-needed international focus, this compact guide is essential reading for practising psychiatrists and geriatricians, as well as trainees, nurses and medical students.

Cerebrovascular Disease, Cognitive Impairment and Dementia

David Ames, Edmond Chiu
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 256

When discussing dementia, the medical literature tends to focus on Alzheimer's disease, leaving other dementias, such as those relating to cerebrovascular disease, somewhat neglected, despite being a common cause of cognitive decline in later life. However, in recent years there has been a remarkable transformation in our knowledge about the role of vascular factors in cognitive decline and dementia. It is now recognized that cerebrovascular disease influences clinical expression of cognitive and non cognitive features in a variety of cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer's disease itself.Cerebrovascular Disease, Cognitive Impairment and Dementia reviews what is now known about the relationship between cerebrovascular disease and dementia. It describes new knowledge of how vascular processes interact with neuro-degenerative ones, and how both appear to be risk factors for the other. The book contains contributions from leading international experts and covers epidemiology, diagnosis, clinical features, investigations (including neuroimaging), management, and service and caregiver issues. The second edition of this pioneering text is completely revised and emphasizes the primary and secondary prevention of cerebrovascular disease and the treatment of cognitive impairment. A truly comprehensive yet accessible text which puts basic research findings in a clinically relevant context, this book will appeal to psychiatrists, neurologists, geriatricians, allied health professionals, and others involved in the care of patients with cognitive impairment and dementia.
