About Geriatrics

Geriatric care addresses the complex needs of older people, focusing on health promotion and the prevention and treatment of disease and disability in the elderly. Comprehensive healthcare of the aging patient takes place in ambulatory, acute, and long-term care settings, and is usually provided by a multidisciplinary team, whose members may include a geriatrician, geriatric nurse practitioner, primary care clinician, nurses, pharmacists, and others.
