An aging population places ever greater demands on health services. The delivery of efficient and effective psychiatric care for older people is a big concern for health service providers in both developed and developing countries.

For both clinicians and service planners, this volume will be invaluable in helping them cope with the increasing demands they face, and optimize the service that they provide.

* Covers a wide range of topics from the theoretical to the practical, broadening the reader's understanding of service delivery and providing them with guidelines that can be directly applied
