Geriatric Books and Textbooks
This list of geriatric books is compiled by the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy for the benefit of the geriatric clinician. Some of these books are relatively brief overviews of geriatric drug therapy and other are more comprehensive geriatric textbooks. Brief summary information is provided here, along with a link to a more comprehensive description of each book on the Amazon.com website.
