Multi-disciplinary in its approach, this book details key psychiatric conditions, their assessment and management in line with modern developments, including the latest developments in healthcare policy. It has been thoroughly revised to incorporate the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidance.

Case studies are used throughout to aid comprehension and illustrate the realities of working in this area.
Now in its Fifth Edition, Practical Psychiatry of Old Age is ideal as a clinical primer for those in training, or as a day-to-day reference for healthcare professionals working with older people.

It is my privilege to undertake the foreword to this classic textbook. The immensely practical approach of this book is underpinned by a strong evidence-base. Theory and practice are expertly melded but there are also important insights regarding ethical dilemmas, societal values and spiritual concerns.
Robert Baldwin, in the Foreword
