Dementia affects up to a quarter of the world's population. Given the growing proportion of the population over age 65, dementia will continue to be a major public health concern. Cost-effective detection and treatment of dementing illnesses will increasingly challenge clinical practice. Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Older Adult: A Clinician's Guidebook presents a framework for assessing whether an individual has experienced abnormal cognitive change. The book's framework follows a logical sequence, beginning with the clinical interview, moving through formal testing, identification of the patient's neuropsychological profile, preparing the evaluation report, planning feedback and follow-up services. Specific clinical guidelines and suggestions are included, addressing issues such as ensuring patient cooperation, testing efficiency, and successfully managing complex patient-family interactions. Readers will also find technical information, including principles of test design and profiles of the major neurobehavioral disorders affecting older adults. This book will be a valuable and frequently used tool for professionals evaluating older adults, including: neuropsychologists, physicians, nurses, and social workers. The guidebook will also be useful to graduate students in clinical and neuropsychology.Green, Joanne is the author of 'Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Older Adult A Clinician's Guidebook' with ISBN 9780122981906 and ISBN 0122981901.
