Written by NPs and PAs who have a wealth of experience in the care of older adults across all practice settings, Gerontology and Geriatrics for NPs and PAs takes an evidence-based approach to both gerontology and geriatrics, incorporating the latest national and international guidelines and standards of care. This first-of-its-kind text takes an interprofessional, teamwork-based approach that reflects Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) core competencies, as well as the unique perspectives that NPs and PAs each bring to the collaborative care of older adults.
Covers both primary care and acute care of older adults and fully addresses both graduate-level and practitioner core competencies necessary for optimal care of older adults.
Places a strong emphasis on wellness (including nutrition and the Healthy People 2030 targets), normal aging, common syndromes of aging, disease management, patient safety (particularly in acute care settings), and a patient-centered care approach.
Features vibrant, full-color illustrations, a full-color design for ease of navigation, and graduate-level learning features that include Key Points at the end of each chapter for quick reference and exam preparation.
Addresses a wide range of topics specifically focused on the common medical problems of older adults, with chapters logically organized for efficient study and quick clinical reference.
