From the Publisher:
How do public health policy, programs and ethics respond to the aging population? The second edition of Public Health and Aging introduces key topics central to this discussion. New chapters focus on financing preventive care, on long-term care, chronic disease in older adults, and ethical issues. The new edition also includes expanded discussions of the demography and epidemiology of aging, and of mortality and end of life care. Updated statistics and trends related to physical, cognitive, and affective functioning and new questions to facilitate classroom dialogue make this extensively revised text an essential addition to the field.
