Description : Sinds het verschijnen van de Richtlijn diagnostiek en farmacologische behandeling van dementie in 2005 zijn er veel ontwikkelingen gaande op het gebied van onderzoek, diagnostiek en behandeling van dementie. Het accent is meer komen te liggen op een benadering vanuit de pathologie en minder op de syndroomdiagnose.Oordelen over zogenoemde anti-alzheimermiddelen worden voortaan wetenschappelijk onderbouwd, er worden steeds meer niet-farmacologische interventies ontwikkeld en er is meer aandacht voor de behandeling en zorg van patienten.Deze en andere ontwikkelingen hebben geleid tot dit Handboek dementie. Het is een compleet boek, dat uitgebreid aandacht besteedt aan het interdisciplinaire karakter van de zorg rondom dementie. Dit handboek bestaat uit vier delen: algemene aspecten, diagnostiek, behandeling en beleid en ziektebeelden. Mede door deze overzichtelijke indeling komen alle onderwerpen goed tot hun recht en worden ze in het juiste perspectief geplaatst. Daarnaast is alle informatie zodanig gepresenteerd, dat de informatie goed bruikbaar in de praktijk is.Handboek dementie is een aanrader voor alle professionals die in hun dagelijks werk met dementie in aanraking komen: huisartsen, medisch specialisten, klinisch geriaters, internisten-ouderengeneeskunde, ouderenpsychiaters en specialisten ouderengeneeskunde, klinisch (neuro)psychologen, (psycho)gerontologen en verpleegkundigen.Daarnaast is het boek uitermate geschikt voor studenten geneeskunde en psychologie, alsmede voor studenten van een van bovengenoemde specialismen."

Description : The care home sector is large, with over 400 000 residents in the UK and a similar number employed within the homes. It is therefore an area of considerable economic importance. Care home residents are often very old, and many have multiple physical and mental health needs, meaning that their care poses particular challenges. They are also a distinctly and profoundly marginalised group who are often invisible in the wider debates on quality of care including those about care homes. Mental Health and Care Homes is a coherent and evidence-based text exploring these issues. Bringing together both clinical and research perspectives it will help those working in the care home sector to deliver high quality care and support to both residents and staff. This important, yet neglected, area is thoroughly reviewed by a range of experts including residents, family carers, staff, researchers, and clinicians. The book has four sections: 'the inside view' which includes several first-hand accounts of care home life; 'the outside view' which discusses the regulatory, funding, and legislative context in which care homes operate; 'mental health and care', a detailed review of the major mental and other health issues that arise in care homes, as well as interventions and services to offer support; and a section exploring the 'promotion of health and wellbeing' including examples of good practice. It concludes by synthesising key themes and setting an agenda for further enquiry. The book is written in a style that encourages engagement, with the inclusion of contemporary case studies and examples, making it topical and readable. It will be valuable for a broad professional and vocational audience across both health and social care, as well as students and researchers.

Description : Old age psychiatry continues to grow as speciality, driven by research advances, demographics and political will. Psychiatric services and treatments for the old are improving and the outlook for further progress is encouraging. In this new edition of the classic textbook of old age psychiatry, Robin Jacoby and Catherine Oppenheimer have retained the coherent structure of previous editions, approaching the topic under the section headings of basic sciencej, clinical practice, psychiatric services and specific disorders; however, within this logical structure they have conducted a major revision, bringing in a number of new authors and covering the full range of new research. The exciting developments in the field of molecular biology are covered as are the improvements in our understanding of the pathogenesis of the dementias, specifically, although not limited to Alzheimer's Disease. All of the chapters in this new edition have been revised and updated and there are new chapters on quality of life measurement, the economics of care, suicide in old age, hallucinations and functional symptoms in Parkinson's Disease. The team of expert contributors has grown to 62 in number, representing a wide range of specialities and providing input from nine different countries. This has resulted in the most comprehensive and holistic review of the field. Psychiatry in the Elderly continues to be essential reading for trainees, practicing psychiatrists and those in other branches of care whose work brings them into contact with elderly psychiatric patients.

Description : For most of human history, life expectancy was remarkably stable at about 30-40 years. Within the past 150 years, however, medical advances have virtually doubled that number. The worlds elderly population is growing at 2.4% per year, faster than the rest of the population, with disproportionate increases expected to continue as newer and better treatments are found that minimize the disabilities associated with advanced age.

Geriatric neuropsychiatry is an integrative specialty that draws from many diverse fields, including psychiatry, neurology, neuroscience, and geriatrics. It provides expertise on how to distinguish normal age-related changes from those of disease and disordered brain function. Edited by two eminent practitioners and educators, this wide-ranging textbooks 41 chapters are divided into five major sections: ? Introduction to Geriatric NeuropsychiatryIntroduces the field, including the epidemiology of aging and its array of interacting and accumulating disadvantages, the neurobiology of aging, and the neurobiological basis of behavior? Neuropsychiatric Assessment of the ElderlyDescribes how to ensure early, accurate diagnoses, using both the fundamental cognitive skills evaluation and the more in-depth neuropsychological evaluation; age-associated memory impairment (AAMI) and its biological bases; anatomic imaging of age-related changes in brain morphology; and the latest imaging techniques that allow visualization of brain function in vivo? Neuropsychiatric Aspects of Psychiatric Disorders in the ElderlyCovers everything from affective and anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and psychoses that start late in life to sleep disorders, delirium, pain, contemporary personality psychology, mental retardation, and aggression? Neuropsychiatric Aspects of Neurological Disease in the ElderlyFocuses on diseases such as nondegenerative dementing disorders, Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases, hyperkinetic movement disorders, stroke, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury, concluding with medical illnesses and therapies? Principles of Neuropsychiatric Treatment of the ElderlyDiscusses the effect of age in geriatric neuropsychopharmacology, psychopharmacology, ECT, psychosocial therapies, neuropsychiatry in nursing homes, genetic interventions, rehabilitation, ethical issues, and competency and related forensic issues Exhaustively researched and annotated, the American Psychiatric Press Textbook of Geriatric Neuropsychiatry, Second Edition provides a definitive core reference for psychiatry and neurology residents, particularly those pursuing a specialty in geriatrics, and for graduate students in psychology, neuropsychology, and related fields.
