This book brings together the theory and practice of psychogeriatric service delivery from an international perspective.

An aging population places ever greater demands on health services. The delivery of efficient and effective psychiatric care for older people is a big concern for health service providers in both developed and developing countries.

For both clinicians and service planners, this volume will be invaluable in helping them cope with the increasing demands they face, and optimize the service that they provide.

* Provides examples of psychogeriatric service delivery throughout the world, giving the reader the benefit of a wide range of expertise and opinion
* Covers a wide range of topics from the theoretical to the practical, broadening the reader's understanding of service delivery and providing them with guidelines that can be directly applied
* The only book to cover psychogeriatric service delivery in one volume, providing a 'one-stop' source of reference for service planners and clinicians
