Learning Geriatric Medicine
A Study Guide for Medical Students
This textbook presents hands-on training material based on the recently released “European undergraduate curriculum in geriatric medicine”. The style reflects the need for practice-based teaching in daily clinical routine with a modern edge; accordingly, it also employs online material and pocket cards.Each chapter begins with specific learning objectives cross-referenced with the European curriculum for undergraduate medical education released by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) together with the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS), and the minimum geriatric competences for medical students established by the American Geriatrics Society (AGS).World-renowned European experts in practicing and teaching the interdisciplinary field of Geriatrics cooperated and pooled together the fundaments of this medical discipline with the aim of offering to the new generation of health professionals a global perspective about one of the major public health challenges of our time: the management of the steadily increasing number of older, multimorbid, and vulnerable persons.The major strength of this book – published under the auspices of the EUGMS – is its pragmatic, goal-oriented approach, which makes it suitable for bedside learning and patient-centered medicine; further, all of the chapters are firmly based on the pillars of the ageing process in all of its biological aspects, helping readers understand the pathophysiology of and rationale behind interventions for the main geriatric syndromes and disorders.weiterlesen
