The field of geriatric rehabilitation is constantly changing due to the discovery of new evidence-based evaluation and treatment strategies, as well as the continual support or refutation of older theories and practices. Now in its Fourth Edition, A Clinical Approach to Geriatric Rehabilitation has been updated to be at the forefront of these changes.

Drs. Jennifer M. Bottomley and Carole B. Lewis have compiled the plethora of available scientific research on geriatric populations and combined it with their years of actual clinical practice. Together this makes this text a complete evidence-based guide to the clinical care of geriatric patients and clients.

The first part of A Clinical Approach to Geriatric Rehabilitation, Fourth Edition tackles applied gerontological concepts, providing the general knowledge base necessary for treating geriatric patients. Topics in this section include patient evaluation, an exploration of nutritional needs, and age-related changes in physiology and function, as well as many other foundational areas.

In the second section, topics become more focused on patient care concepts like neurologic considerations, cardiopulmonary and cardiovascular considerations, and establishing community-based screening programs.

In the final section, chapters center on administration and management, including important subjects such as attitudes, ethics, and legal topics, as well as consultation and research.

New and updated in the Fourth Edition:

Pearls section for succinct highlights of the content within each chapter
The latest evidence-based practice interventions with complete references for further reading
Updated graphics, pictures, and diagrams to illustrate the content
Content summaries and streamlined text for enhanced readability
Updated case studies to exemplify clinical decision-making

Designed to provide valuable, real-life clinical knowledge, A Clinical Approach to Geriatric Rehabilitation, Fourth Edition gives physical therapists an evidence-based guide to the clinical aspects of rehabilitative care in older adult patients and clients.
