This third edition of Essential Geriatrics has been comprehensively updated and expanded, and now includes over 200 questions and answers throughout the text in the 'best of five' format. This text specifically focuses on the key aspects of elderly care, spanning both general medicine and the particular problems encountered in geriatrics as a route into the specialty. Practical guidance for managing the conditions covered is included at the end of each section, with reasoned approaches to areas where evidence is more scarce.


"All of the major geriatric syndromes are dealt with, such as Dementia, Delirium, Movement Disorders, Continence and Falls … The entire volume is eminently readable and avoids the overly academic tone and focus that repels trainees … a truly fantastic book."

—Shane O’Hanlon, Honorary Deputy Secretary, British Geriatrics Society
