Title: The Merck Manual of Geriatrics
Url: https://www.merckmanuals.com/professional/geriatrics
Publisher: Merck Research Laboratories
Description: Merck and Co., Inc., publisher of the standard medical text The Merck Manual of Diagnosis and Therapy (described in the July 19, 1996 Scout Report but no longer available in an Internet version), has placed online the full text of another of its publications, The Merck Manual of Geriatrics. The Manual focuses on the medical problems and care of the elderly and is directed at healthcare professionals, but many older users and those caring for elderly relatives may find it useful. Divided into five sections and 114 chapters, the Manual offers a comprehensive review of the medical, social, psychological, and ethical issues involved in elder healthcare. Sample topics include nutrition, sleep disorders, pharmacology, organ system disorders, sexuality, psychiatric disorders, legal issues, and health insurance, among many others. The entire publication is searchable, and a guide for readers of the online version is provided.
