Talking With Your Older Patient: A Clinician’s Handbook

This is a free, online book offered by the National Institute on Aging.

The aim is to introduce and/or reinforce communication skills essential in caring for older patients and their families. Talking With Your Older Patient: A Clinician’s Handbook offers practical techniques and approaches to help with diagnosis, promote treatment adherence, make more efficient use of clinicians’ time, and increase patient and provider satisfaction."
