About this book
This book aims to equip individual clinicians with the interdisciplinary knowledge, skills, and perspective they need to provide the best care possible. Written by experts in home-based medical care, this book consists of 20 of the most common scenarios that challenge physicians administering home-based care for geriatric patients. Each scenario requires an approach or leverages aspects of care delivery that most are not trained in. Additionally, each scenario reflects an approach to care that is enhanced by interdisciplinary input. Finally, each case lends itself to a practical problem-solving approach that could be accomplished by most home-based medical care providers, even in the absence of an interdisciplinary team.
Home-Based Medical Care for Older Adults is a valuable resource for all clinicians who may administer medical care in a non-medical setting, including geriatricians, family medicine physicians, psychiatrists, home nurses, social workers, students, and other interdisciplinary team members.
