Five Stars “To the point resources on geriatric conditions/syndroms. Very easy to read/access the content you need…bulleted and formatted for quick reference. Helpful sections on evidence-based guidelines.”—Ben
Should be titled “GET THIS BOOK NOW!”“GREAT book for my new job…I’ve been an NP to college students and in urgent care, but this is the first time I’ve been a nurse practitioner for a geriatric house call practice and this book is perfect. I am really enjoying the format, the timely and research backed treatment protocols and the compassionate, well written style for advising anyone in the business of taking care of old folks! This is a must-read for all medical people but is especially suited to a Geriatric NP or Family Practice NP who see elderly patients regularly.”—Amazon Reviewer

⭐ Just some examples so you understand what I mean. This is all on a single page, p463.-It says “a significant number” of people are on 5 or more medications, but this doesn’t really give any information. What is a “significant” number? And for that ultra-soft “fact” it cites a study from 2008 (!!), and the book was published in 2019.-It has a section about which ethnicities are affected by each condition. In “prescription drug misuse” the ethnicity section is four words, “All races are affected.” A simple google search finds that races are NOT affected *equally*. So what’s the point of this statement?-Another section says “multiple studies show a higher rate of prescription drug abuse in the 50- to 64- year age group.” Higher than what? It does not say. But if you do a simple google search, the highEST rate of abuse is not this age group.It feels like it was written (or edited) by people who aren’t very smart. I find myself constantly fact-checking, which wastes too much time. This kind of book discredits the field of APRN. ⭐ This book was a required text for a class. I like the way it is organized and it is easy to read. I’m bit surprised by how many errors I have seen in the book which include contradictory info as well as just straight up incorrect info. There are also many instances were sentences are repeated in the same section or in another section a few paragraphs later. ⭐ I needed this book for school, I do enjoy the general overview however I agree with the other posted review about the book being vague and underwhelming. Since I needed to read it I wanted to use the text to speech function on Kindle but alias this book does not allow that. ⭐ Don’t waste your money. It won’t open on Kindle for PC, I tried updating it and was with customer service for an hour and it does not work. You can’t even read it online on read.amazon.com. I have a brand new computer less than a year old, customer service thinks it may be too new. Lame. They need to update their software. ⭐ I bought it for a class. It served its purpose. The layout is standard and I learned as much as I put into it. I do love my little patients, so it was a good investment to learn how to better care for them. ⭐ Easy to read, needed it to FNP courses. Not much to say I was forced to buy it for school ⭐ Brand new & gas delivery! ⭐ Good reference ⭐ Good product. ⭐ Important info in this book for test taking. Easy to read and no extra fluf.
