Challenges in Elder Care Book Review:

This work is intended as a brief but focused compilation to assist with diagnosis and management of the most common serious medical problems in the rapidly growing geriatric population. The geriatric population recently expanded by the fact that the baby boomers have reached the milestone of 65 years of age in the past 5 years. Tips for diagnosis, medication administration, and logistics of cost-effective management in the health-care continuum are presented in this book. The latter often consists of a journey from home to medical office to emergency room to hospital bed to intensive care unit to long-term acute care hospital to skilled nursing facility to long-term residential facility and/or back home, which is also reviewed in the book Geriatrics.

Implant Therapy in the Geriatric Patient Book Review:

After a very successful series of eight previous treatment guides, it seems logical to think about our patients as they grow older and may become frail and more dependent on care. Volume 9 of the ITI Treatment Guide attests to the ITI's holistic approach to implant dentistry and to its professional responsibility for patients who have aged with implant-supported restorations in place, as well as for patients at a more advanced age who, until late in life, can benefit from the progress we have made in terms of the materials and techniques that present-day implant dentistry has to offer. The ITI Treatment Guide series is a compendium of evidence-based implant-therapy techniques and procedures for daily practice. Written by renowned clinicians and supported by contributions from expert practitioners, the ITI Treatment Guides provide a comprehensive overview of various clinical options. The management of different clinical situations is discussed with an emphasis on sound diagnostics, evidencebased treatment concepts, and predictable treatment outcomes with minimal risk to the patient.

Physical Change and Aging Sixth Edition Book Review:

"[This book] has been honed into an elegant compendium. This outstanding work should be widely read ñ it is perhaps the best example of an integrative approach to gerontology." Score: 94, 4 stars ñ Doody's "Phyisical Change & Aging has been a well-respected resource for caregivers ever since it was published in 1978. This updated version carries on the tradition of providing valuable information on the aging process and age-related health issues." ñ Former First Lady Mrs. Rosalynn Carter This sixth edition of a classic multidisciplinary text for students of gerontology continues to offer practical, reader-friendly information about the physical changes and common pathologies associated with the aging process. It places special emphasis on the psychological and social implications of these changes in the lives of older adults. The book is distinguished by its thorough focus on anatomy and physiology and common health problems pertaining to each body system. It emphasizes the positive aspects of aging and demonstrates how the elderly population can gain greater personal control, through lifestyle changes and preventive health strategies, toward the goal of optimal aging. This sixth edition has been thoroughly updated to present new research findings that differentiate "normal" aging from actual pathology and includes substantially updated information on diagnosis and treatment. It incorporates new data from healthy older adults demonstrating that the aging process is not necessarily as devastating as earlier research had indicated. The book provides new data and guidelines on risk factors, nutrition, preventive measures, interventions, and commonly prescribed medications, and includes expanded treatment of complementary and alternative therapies. Also included is an updated discussion of grief, ethical issues, and funeral options. The book reinforces information with practical applications of aging data. Written for students of gerontology, social work, human services, nursing, medicine, occupational and physical therapy, counseling, and elder law, it presents information that is clearly understandable for those without an extensive background in biology or medicine. Additionally, the book is a useful practitioner's guide and an easily understandable book for family caregivers. THIS SIXTH EDITION INCLUDES NEW INFORMATION ON: Diagnosis and treatment Behaviors and interventions that promote more control over an individual's aging process Genetic/DNA theories Dementia and Parkinson's disease Immunotherapy Lifelong health disparities Animal-assisted therapy Prayer and meditation Pharmacogenetics Geragogy (self-directed learning) Caregiver health as a public health issue Natural funerals (biodegradable caskets, burial urns, dying at home)

Drug Related Problems in Geriatric Nursing Home Patients Book Review:

Medication mishaps can and do happen in nursing homes. This highly important new book focuses on the scope of drug-related problems (DRP) of misuse and adverse reaction to medications in the nursing home environment. Experts provide practical methods for detecting DRPs, they explain a systematic approach to preventing DRPs, and they document the magnitude of DRPs in the long term care setting. Each chapter of this timely book deals with a different type of drug-related problem and includes operational definitions, prevalence of the problem, and the actions needed to detect and minimize risk and prevent recurrence. A checklist at the end of each chapter aids readers in assessing specific problems in nursing homes, home health care, day care settings, and other locations in which medications are given to the elderly. Illustrative case examples are used throughout the text. With an emphasis on awareness and change, Drug-Related Problems in Geriatric Nursing Home Patients will be invaluable for pharmacists, physicians, and nurses who work in long term care; health care planners who need to be cognizant of the scope and magnitude of medication mishaps in the nursing home; administrators who are ultimately responsible for such problems. Students and educators will find the information, and especially the checklists, timely and practical.
