Geriatrics Models of Care
This book describes geriatrics practice models that are used to guide the care of older adults, allowing seniors to remain at home, prevent functional disability and preserve quality of life. The models include specific interventions which are performed by health care workers to address the needs of older persons and their caregivers. These models respect patient values, consider patient safety and appreciate psychosocial needs as well. Divided into six parts that discuss hospital-based models of care, transitions from hospital to home, outpatient-based models of care and emergency department models of care, this text addresses the needs of vulnerable patients and the community. Geriatric Models of Care is an excellent resource for health care leaders who must translate these programs to address the needs of the patients in their communities.
