Guide Pratique de la Consultation En G riatrie Excerpt :

Le vieillissement de la population confronte de plus en plus le praticien aux patients particuliers que sont les sujets âgés. Outre l'examen clinique traditionnel, l'évaluation gérontologique standardisée (EGS) doit rentrer dans la pratique courante de tout généraliste. Cet examen permet d'évaluer l'ensemble des fonctions cognitives, sociales, et l'autonomie fonctionnelle d'un patient. À l'aide des nombreux tests courts et pratiques de diagnostic, cet ouvrage permet au praticien de suivre l'évolution physique et psychique des personnes âgées. Il propose tout d'abord un examen clinique spécifique (évaluation cognitive, thymique, nutritionnelle, de l'équilibre et de la marche, évaluation fonctionnelle et de l'autonomie), puis un état des lieux des pathologies gériatriques, des pathologies neurodégénératives et des troubles du comportement. Cette nouvelle édition présente notamment les outils opposables à PATHOS (outil d'évaluation des états pathologiques en EHPAD) et propose des tests plus spécifiques à l'attention des sujets fragiles afin de dépister suffisamment tôt cette fragilité et un certain nombre de déficits pour mettre en place des attitudes de prévention, de traitement et de prises en charge efficaces. Ce guide s'intègre parfaitement dans la pratique des médecins généralistes, des médecins coordonnateurs en EHPAD et de tous les praticiens dans le suivi de leurs patients âgés.

Getting Wise about Getting Old Excerpt :

A grey tsunami is sweeping the land, wreaking social and financial havoc in its wake. Sound familiar? This myth about aging, along with twenty-eight others, is the focus of Getting Wise about Getting Old, which paints a far more accurate and nuanced portrait of old age. In it, experts debunk myths and persistent stereotypes about aging on a broad array of social issues – from retirement (seniors are low-performance workers) to housing (most older adults live in long-term care accommodation), and violence (senior women are not victims of sexual assault) to political participation (seniors are conservative and resistant to change) – deconstructing and countering them with the latest findings. The work of two leading research groups in Quebec, the short and accessible chapters of this vitally important book contribute to a better understanding of the social challenges, as well as the advantages, of an aging society.

  • ISBN 10 : 9781136549236

Vaccine Anxieties Excerpt :

This book explores how parents understand and engage with childhood vaccination in contrasting global contexts. This rapidly advancing and universal technology has sparked dramatic controversy, whether over MMR in the UK or oral polio vaccines in Nigeria. Combining a fresh anthropological perspective with detailed field research, the book examines anxieties emerging as highly globalized vaccine technologies and technocracies encounter the deeply intimate personal and social worlds of parenting and childcare, and how these are part of transforming science-society relations. It retheorizes anxieties about technologies, integrating bodily, social and wider political dimensions, and challenges common views of ignorance, risk, trust and rumour - and related dichotomies between Northern risk society and Southern developing society - that dominate current scientific and policy debates. In so doing, the book reflects critically on the stereotypes that at times pass for explanations of public engagement with both routine vaccination and vaccine research. It suggests routes to improved dialogue between health professionals and the people they serve, and new ways to address science-society relations in a globalized world.

Preventing Dementia Excerpt :

The conceptualization of dementia has changed dramatically in recent years with the claim that, through early detection and by controlling several risk factors, a prevention of dementia is possible. Although encouraging and providing hope against this feared condition, this claim is open to scrutiny. This volume looks at how this new conceptualization ignores many of the factors which influence a dementia sufferers’ prognosis, including their history with education, food and exercise as well as their living in different epistemic cultures. The central aim is to question the concept of prevention and analyze its impact on aging people and aging societies.
