Críticas

From the reviews:

“This is a practical guide to assessment, recommendations, and prevention of cognitive decline and dementia. … The chapters are organized fairly uniformly … . The book includes helpful tables and figures as well as some clinical case examples. … this will be an invaluable resource, both for seasoned veterans and novice clinicians. It also will be of great assistance to neuropsychologists who are considering changing their focus to older adults.” (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody's Book Reviews, January, 2013)

“A ‘must have’ for the bookshelves of any neuropsychologist who sees or wants to see older adults. … Hats off to Drs Lisa Ravdin and Heather Katzen for putting together such a useful, well written addition to the Clinical Handbook series … . I recommend this book to anyone who is involved in or considering providing assessment to older adults. I guarantee it will provide you with new perspectives and/or issues to consider as you move forward in your clinical practice.” (Laura A. Flashman, Clinical Handbooks in Neuropsychology, 2013)

Reseña del editor

With the aging of the baby boomers and medical advances that promote longevity, older adults are rapidly becoming the fastest growing segment of the population. As the population ages, so does the incidence of age related disorders. Many predict that 15% - 20% of the baby-boomer generation will develop some form of cognitive decline over the course of their lifetime, with estimates escalating to up to 50% in those achieving advanced age. Although much attention has been directed at Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, it is estimated that nearly one third of those cases of cognitive decline result from other neuropathological mechanisms. In fact, many patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease likely have co-morbid disorders that can also influence cognition (i.e., vascular cognitive impairment), suggesting mixed dementias are grossly under diagnosed. The Clinical Handbook on the Neuropsychology of Aging and Dementia is a unique work that provides clinicians with expert guidance and a hands-on approach to neuropsychological practice with older adults. The book will be divided into two sections, the first addressing special considerations for the evaluation of older adults, and the second half focusing on common referral questions likely to be encountered when working with this age group. The authors of the chapters are experts and are recognized by their peers as opinion leaders in their chosen chapter topics. The field of neuropsychology has played a critical role in developing methods for early identification of late life cognitive disorders as well as the differential diagnosis of dementia. Neuropsychological assessment provides valuable clinical information regarding the nature and severity of cognitive symptoms associated with dementia. Each chapter will reinforce the notion that neuropsychological measures provide the clinician with sensitive tools to differentiate normal age-related cognitive decline from disease-associated impairment, aid in differential diagnosis of cognitive dysfunction in older adults, as well as identify cognitive deficits most likely to translate into functional impairments in everyday life.
