Summary "Geriatric psychiatry is a relatively young discipline within the field of psychiatry in North America. And with an aging population, developing a workforce that is equipped to meet the mental health needs of older adults is an urgent priority. Geriatric Psychiatry Review and Exam Preparation Guide offers geriatric psychiatrists, general psychiatrists, and other healthcare workers a detailed and up-to-date reference that can be used to prepare for ward rounds, in case discussions, in educational sessions with patients and families, or for exam preparation. Experts from across Canada have contributed chapters on dementia; mood, anxiety, and other disorders; and other issues and topics unique to working with older adults and their caregivers. Each chapter includes a case scenario, concise point-form summaries of diagnostic and treatment approaches, up-to-date evidence syntheses, discussions of controversies, a series of practical and thought-provoking questions and answers, and recommended resources for further reading. The result is a succinct and advanced review of geriatric psychiatry that will help clinicians improve the psychiatric care of an aging population."-- Provided by publisher
