Protocols in Primary Care Geriatrics aimes to improve practical clinical knowledge among physicians and oth- ers caring for elderly people. It is designed to give both quick reference to clinical problem-solving schemes and lists, as well as a lucid, readable discussion of the topics. Didactic exercises make the text interesting and provide an opportunity to improve learning. The book's value lies primarily in the combination of notebook-like material and clinical approaches, presented in brief, readable chapters with attached didactic exercises. The audience is mainly family physicians. Primary care internists and other primary specialists caring for elderly people would also be interested. Nursing homes, hospitals, and individual health care professionals other than physicians might use it as a reference
