This handbook is a practical guide for medical students, residents, and fellows treating older adults. It was prepared by residents and fellows in internal medicine, geriatrics, cardiology, ophthalmology, rheumatology, and urology, with faculty advisors from the Division of Nutrition and Aging. The authors provide a framework for approaching the important issues that arise in geriatrics and focus on key aspects of the evaluation and treatment of common geriatric disorders and consultations.
