About the Authors
  • Depression is one of the most common mental health problems facing older people, and it is often unrecognised and usually under-treated. Integrated Management of Depression in the Elderly provides an entirely new approach to understanding late-life depression, by using a series of case studies with commentaries from practitioners internationally. The book covers the epidemiology, presentation and diagnosis of depression in older people and outlines current evidence for effective management drawing on recently published work. The substantive part of the book presents ten case studies of increasing complexity, each case has a commentary from a primary care clinician and a health or social care professional, to outline how professionals should work together to manage the patient within their community. Contributions from world experts give the book an international appeal. It will appeal to a wide audience of health and social care professionals together with psychiatrists-in-training.

    • Illustrates practical management of elderly people with depression
    • Includes international contributor commentaries that will appeal to wide ranging audience
    • Provides practical advice and resources to assist health and social care professionals in their day-to-day work

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The result is accessible and very readable and although the introductory material is quite brief it is authoritative and well summarised. The focus on primary care is clear throughout and the book uses the stepped care approach proposed by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) that will be familiar to many people in the UK. … How well does the imaginative format of the book work? The cases are typical of everyday practice and raise important issues. The vignettes could themselves be used for teaching and discussion purposes, before making reference to the discussion. … Reading and listening to stories is something that draws us to other people and its emphasis on stories is what helps to bring this book alive.' Psychological Medicine

    'Integrated Management of Depression in the Elderly deftly covers the etiology, assessment and management of depression in older adults in a slim and portable volume. … I would recommend this boo to those setting out in the practice of medicine of psychiatry, both in primary and secondary care.' Journal of International Psychogeriatrics
