This new edition of Brocklehurst's Textbook of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology builds on the structure and content of previous editions. Four sections cover gerontology, clinical geriatric medicine, problem-based geriatrics, and health systems and geriatric medicine. The most important feature of this new edition is the increased emphasis on clinical practice - practising geriatricians will be able to turn to Brocklehurst's sixth edition and easily find the answer to both common and rarer clinical problems.
