Summary "Addressing a significant deficiency in prehospital educational materials for EMS providers, this unique text focuses solely on the prehospital care of the elder patient with illness or injury. Geriatric patients are one of the most rapidly growing segments serviced by Prehospital Providers, and this comprehensive resource is an ideal tool to aid in the training and education of how to best treat these patients. Based on real-world cases, it provides material relevant to the work of all EMS personnel, and contains special sections on elder abuse, medical ethics, and living wills."--BOOK JACKET
