Based around the core curriculum for specialist trainees and consultants, Oxford Case Histories in Geriatric Medicine is a valuable reference and teaching tool, which provides an opportunity for case-based learning across a rapidly growing field. This book uses well-structured and concise cases from the Oxford hospitals. Each case has associated questions on the differential diagnosis and aspects of management providing interactive learning material.
Cases were chosen to illustrate specific issues of particular relevance to geratology, emphasizing the unusual or occult presentation of disease, the presence of multiple interacting pathologies, possibility for rapid deterioration, high incidence of complications of treatment, including adverse drug reactions and a need at times for difficult clinical decisions.
Part of the Oxford Case Histories series, this book will be valuable reading for postgraduate trainees and consultants, and will be an essential resource for those preparing for exit examinations and revalidation. It is also the ideal tool for those who wish to improve their skills in diagnosis and management of a broad range of geriatric disorders.
