As the aging population continues to increase, so does the need for a text specific to the specialized care of the elderly patient as it applies to the physical therapist assistant student, faculty, and clinician. Geriatric Rehabilitation: A Textbook for the Physical Therapist Assistant, recognizes the growing role of the PTA in a variety of heath care settings from acute to home to long-term care settings, to name a few. Inside Geriatric Rehabilitation, Dr. Jennifer Bottomley, along with her contributors, focuses on the clinically relevant assessment, treatment, and management of the geriatric population. Pathological manifestations commonly seen in the elderly patient are addressed from a systems perspective, as well as a focus on what is seen clinically and how it affects function. Each pathological area covered includes: * Screening, assessment, and evaluation * Treatment prescription * Goal setting * Modification of treatment * Anticipated outcomes * Psychosocial, pharmacological, and nutritional elements The organization and presentation of the practical, hands-on components of interventions, assessments, and decision-making skills make this a go-to text for the PTA to administer comprehensive geriatric care at each point along the continuum of care. Some of the features inside include: * Emphasis on treatment interventions-techniques, tips, and options * Focus on how assessment tools and treatments are applied and modified to benefit the geriatric population, and what the expected outcomes are * Clear and outlined chapter objectives * User-friendly summary tables in the nutritional and pharmacology chapters * Pearls that highlight important chapter information * Appendices and study aids Geriatric Rehabilitation: A Textbook for the Physical Therapist Assistant answers the call for a text that focuses on the management of geriatric patients across the spectrum of care for the PTA, from students to those practicing in geriatric populations.

The second and third units go on to review important aging-related conditions and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular/neurological systems respectively. Neoplasms commonly encountered in older people are the focus of the fourth unit; while aging-related conditions of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, integumentary and sensory systems are presented in units five through seven. Unit eight highlights a range of specific clinical problems and conditions commonly encountered with older patients. Critically, all of these units emphasize important examination and diagnostic procedures needed for a thorough evaluation and stress interventions that can be of significant benefit to the older patient. The ninth unit presents select physical therapeutic interventions that are especially important in managing rehabilitative care. Key societal issues related to aging are discussed in the tenth unit. Finally, the concluding eleventh unit focuses on the successful rehabilitation team that includes both professional and non-professional caregiver members.

This book clearly explains when and how different rehabilitation techniques should be applied in the aging patient, thereby enabling readers to identify and apply those rehabilitation strategies that will maximize quality of life and functional independence in individual cases. It is specifically designed for ease of consultation and rapid retrieval of the information most relevant to clinical practice. Prominence is given to the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation, with discussion of a very wide range of aspects of rehabilitation in different disease settings. The breadth of coverage is illustrated by the attention paid to less commonly addressed topics such as visual and hearing rehabilitation, the role of robotics and 3D imaging techniques, variations in approach among health care systems, and rehabilitation in end-of-life care. The authors are international academic experts in their fields, guaranteeing a high scientific standard throughout. This manual will be an invaluable tool and source of knowledge for geriatricians and physiatrists but will also appeal to a wider range of clinicians, practitioners, and students.

In this new edition of A Clinical Approach to Medicine, the editor has assembled a panel of leading clinicians and researchers, and reorganized the material in the key areas of medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology, neurology, oncology, rheumatology, renal medicine and respiratory medicine. This book is unique -- it reflects the experience of leading experts on patterns of disease in the Asia-Pacific region. There are several other similar books, but those are by authors from the West and therefore offer a different perspective. The book also includes discussions on genetic diseases, infection and antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics, highlighting local incidences and statistics. Each chapter starts with the basic concepts of a particular topic and gradually develops the theme to present the state of the art in the topic. With its focus on practices unique to Asia-Pacific, this book is a must for the student, practicing clinician and research scientist interestedin the latest developments in this part of the world.
