About the Author

Dr Lesley Bowker qualified in 1990 from Southampton, completing further training in Wessex (SHO and registrar jobs) and Oxford (senior registrar) followed by a year in Perth, Australia as a senior lecturer. She was a 'career geriatrician' from early days and developed a research interest in practical clinical ethics especially relating to older people. Her DM thesis (awarded from Southampton in 2003) was in the practical and ethical issues surrounding life-sustaining treatment in the elderly person. Her consultant appointment at Norwich in 2002 allows her to combine clinical work with education as the clinical skills director for the school of medicine at UEA. She obtained her Masters in Clinical Education in 2011. Dr Sarah Smith trained at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, qualifying in 1994. She went on to do house jobs and an SHO rotation at her training hospital, which is where she developed an interest in geriatric medicine. After an ITU post in Brighton, she joined the SpR training scheme for geriatrics and GIM in the Oxford region, completing in 2003. Dr Smith was appointed as a consultant in Community Geriatrics and GIM for the Oxford University Hospitals in 2004, and her main interests are the acute/community interface, stroke rehabilitation and clinical governance.

Reviews

...this is a brilliantly crafted book and a wonderful contribution to the field. * Doody's Notes (from a review of the previous edition) * All physicians who treat older people must have geriatric expertise. It goes without saying that internists, hospital doctors and GPs need easy access to geriatric knowledge, but also surgeons, neurologists, rheumatologists, and other specialists who encounter older patients should know something about the special challenges regarding elderly health and disease, clinical, ethical and practical. The target group is therefore most hospital doctors and all general practitioners sturdy, handheld book like this - along with the online encyclopedia - provides flexible and customized access to the knowledge, advice and guidance. * Tidsskrift for Den norske legeforening, Feb 2013 * This is a thoughtful and challenging book that is very serious reading for clinicians who frequently encounter elderly patients in their practice. * Doody's Notes, Dec 2012 * This is an excellent book. It is succinct yet easy to read ... there are useful little boxes of 'How To's e.g. How To Give Sub-Cut Fluids, Use Digoxin, Assess Depression etc. I thought I know how to do many of these tips but I still found then useful and interesting. This is a useful book for anyone spending time looking after old patients. * BMA Medical Book Competition (from a review of the previous edition) *
