This new edition of the Oxford Textbook of Geriatric Medicine substantially improves on its predecessor. It is the definitive international reference book on an emerging and inescapable medical discipline. There are three new international editors, and many new contributors. Whereas the first edition was designed to complement general textbooks of medicine, this edition stands alone as a reference on all aspects of the medical care of older persons. There is more detailed clinical information on every disease, and this information is given with reference to the changes that take place with ageing, and the resultant appropriate guidance on management and prevention in older patients. There are major sections on common problems in older patients such as incontinence, falls, and delirium. The coverage of ethics, outcomes, legal issues, long-term institutional care, communication, the provision of services, community-orientated support services, and the contribution of non-medicalspecialists to theory and practice in the care of older persons has been strengthened. There are outstanding new sections on autonomic dysfunction, nutrition, back pain, measurement of quality of life, healthy life-expectancy, arterial disease, failure to thrive, sexuality, perioperative care, and special problems such as elder abuse and driving. There is also a section on useful information, containing various tests and scales. The sections on stroke, memory, cardiovascular disease, the respiratory system, nephrology and the genitourinary system, and neurology and psychiatry, have been substantially revised and updated. The need to balance, for the individual patient, the potential for benefit from modern technology, with risks of ill-effects is central to the practice of medicine in an ageing society. Fortunately, there is a growing literature with evidence for the appropriate management of older persons. The contributors give clear guidance on management, based on a reviewof the available evidence and emphasizing where these data are limited; and all chapters have been edited by clinicians actively involved in the day-to-day problems of older people. The Oxford Textbook of Geriatric Medicine has an international perspective, with specialist contributors from nine countries. It will provide every physician involved in the care of older patients with a comprehensive resource on all the clinical problems they are likely to encounter, as well as on related psychological, philosophical, and social issues.

This fifth edition of the ever-popular Oxford Textbook of Public Health Practice has been thoroughly updated, and remains the ultimate resource on the subject of public health and epidemiology. Two new editors, Mary Ann Lansang and Martin Gulliford, join the established editor team of Roger Detels and Robert Beaglehole, representing a truly global outlook from four continents. The contributors are drawn from across the world, offering perspectives from vastly different health systems, with ranging public health needs and priorities. With contributors including Dr. Margaret Chan, Director of the World Health Organization, this book offers a globally comprehensive picture of modern health. The book retains its approach of dividing the complex, dynamic subject of public health into three topics. First, the scope of public health is covered, looking at the development of the discipline, determinants of health and disease, public health policies, and laws and ethics. The second volume focuses on the methods of public health, including the main science behind the discipline--epidemiology. Finally, the third volume puts the theory into practice, examining specific public health problems and options for prevention and control. As well as identifying these issues by system or disease, there is also an awareness of the unique needs of particular population groups. The book concludes with an analysis of the functions of public health, and a look at the future of public health in the 21st century. The picture of world health has moved on dramatically since the publication of the fourth edition in 2002. This new edition includes substantial new material on the impact of private support of public health; globalization; water and sanitation; leadership; community-intervention trials; disease and infection; gene environment interactions; obesity and physical inactivity; urbanization; minorities and indigenous populations; health needs assessment; clinical epidemiology, and the practice of public health. This ensures that the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice remains the most comprehensive, accessible text for both students and practitioners in public health and epidemiology.
