Format: Hardcover
TREATING DEMENTIA offers health libraries an invaluable survey of dementia issues, from how concepts have expanded to embrace a range of symptoms and are influenced by new classes of pharmaceutical treatments to the use of drug treatments for dementia and how culture, language and values affect drug marketing and dementia treatment options around the world. College-level collections need this.
