David C. Kennie provides a clear guide to health promotion and preventive medical care for elderly people. Adopting a broad concept of health, he sets goals, and thoroughly reviews strategies to meet them. He gives a concise, up-to-date evaluation of the worth, risks, and cost of strategies for preventing disease (both cancer and non-cancer related), enhancing functional status, and strengthening social support networks. He also discusses ways to tailor these strategies to the needs and wishes of the individual, as well as how to integrate preventive care into existing mainstream health care, especially in the primary care setting. The book finally examines the cost implications of preventive care for the patient and the provider. Preventive Care for Elderly People will be an important reference on this increasingly important topic for primary care physicians, geriatric specialists, general physicians, and public health consultants.

Industry Reviews

"This book covers a large amount of material in a concise, well organized manner. The author critically evaluates preventive care in the elderly and is not just a cheerleader for prevention. He is not afraid to point out gaps in our knowledge or state where evidence of effectiveness is lacking...a good overview of the subject and an enjoyable read."
