Broad in scope and with global appeal The Oxford Textbook of Old Age Psychiatry, second edition is the definitive resource on old age psychiatry. It comprehensively provides the latest knowledge on the science and practice of treating later life mental disorders, focusing on the health and social issues that arise around ageing, dementia, co-morbidity, dependency, and the end of life in progressively ageing societies across the world. Published in previous incarnations as the much loved Psychiatry in the Elderly, this core resource for all old age psychiatrists, trainees, and other clinical professionals treating older people's mental health, has been fully revised, updated, and significantly expanded. Twelve months inclusive access to the online version, including the full text (which can be browsed by the contents list, index, or searched), links from references to external sources (via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef), and the ability to download all figures and illustrations into PowerPoint ensures that it remains the leading text on old age psychiatry in the field. Maintaining the classic combination of comprehensive coverage, clear writing style, and the provision of authoritative and up-to-date information from earlier editions, this highly respected volume covers the underpinning basic science, both the neurobiological and social varieties, clinical practice, and specific disorders, as well as providing information on psychiatric services for older people, and medico-legal and ethical issues that often present hard challenges for those treating older patients. Taking a global approach by highlighting both the common burdens and the differences in management from country to country and with a much expanded cast of contributors providing a truly international perspective, The Oxford Textbook of Old Age Psychiatry, second edition includes information on all the latest improvements and changes in the field. New chapters are included to reflect the development of old age care; covering palliative care, the ethics of caring, and living and dying with dementia. Existing chapters have also been revised and updated throughout and additional information is included on brain stimulation therapies, memory clinics and services, and capacity, which now includes all mental capacity and decision making. Providing extensive coverage and written by experts the field, the second edition of the Oxford Textbook of Old Age Psychiatry is an essential resource; no old age psychiatrist, trainee, or anyone working in the field of mental health care for older people should be without a copy on their bookshelf.
