Focusing on the most prevalent conditions affecting older adults (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, and fibromyalgia), Morewitz and Goldstein analyze disabilities and risk factors, stressors and coping strategies, treatment and rehabilitation methods, and patient education and self-management. Separate chapters are devoted to cognitive changes, psychological problems, and trends in health care utilization among seniors, and all chapters are amplified by current research findings and instructive case studies. As in their recent work, Chronic Diseases and Health Care, the authors have geared their coverage to reflect the field’s most pressing goals: Provide health care that is both clinically effective and cost-effective. Help elders be more proactive and self-sufficient. Reduce the burden on caregivers. Improve patients’ access to health resources and social support. Improve older adults’ quality of life. With its wide range of issues, Aging and Chronic Disorders is a major resource for clinicians and students in primary care, gerontology, nursing, rehabilitation, epidemiology, public health, and mental health. Public health administrators and policymakers should find important insights here as well
