Handbook of Geriatric Assessment emphasizes the multidisciplinary functions of the geriatric assessment team, and is applicable for healthcare professionals, nurses, social workers, and researchers.

The revised and updated Fourth Edition fosters a multidimensional approach by discussing the assessment of domains that have a significant bearing on the life of older persons, with renewed interest in the prevention of functional decline.

The text provides instruments, questionnaires, and concepts that can be employed in designing clinical assessment procedures. New chapters include:
* Emergency Assessment
* Recognizing Elder Abuse and Neglect
* Depression Assessment
* Substance Use and Abuse Assessment
* Social Assessment of Older Adults
* Assessment of Daily-Living
* Assessment of Older Adults in Their Home, in the Nursing Home, at the Time of Hospitalization
* Adherence to Medical Treatment
* Developing and Managing a High Functioning Interdisciplinary Team
* In the Wake of Terrorism: Mechanisms of Geriatric Assessment

With discussions of the domains of geriatric assessment conveniently compiled in one reference, readers will continue to find practical and useful ideas to take into their daily work with older people.
