Geriatric Medicine at a Glance logically presents the core principles of geriatric medicine, including mechanisms of ageing, changes in physiology commonly seen in older adults, and the clinical management and treatment of the key medical presentations affecting older patients. It provides a thorough overview of the essential required core knowledge, mapped to the British Geriatrics Society undergraduate curriculum on ageing. Geriatric Medicine at a Glance: - Is fully aligned with the newly developed British Geriatric Society curriculum on ageing for undergraduate medical students - Explains the relevant concepts associated with ageing in addition to the common medical presentations seen in older adults - Includes the perspective of nurses and other allied health professionals - Features 'best of five' self-assessment questions, with full explanations of the answers

Geriatric Medicine at a Glance will help address the uncertainty often experienced by medical students and junior doctors when dealing with older patients.
