Disease, whether in old or young people, is not a normal state, and it is no more appropriate for clinicians to accept disease in old people than in young people. A reaction such as, "Well, what do you expect? " stereotypes the aged. Unfortunately, we clinicians easily fall into this attitude if we don't realize that the aged people we treat come to us because they are not feeling well and are seeking treatment to restore them to health. Clinicians must realize that most of the aged function very well for long periods of time and that being old is not — or should not be — equated with being ill.
In Chapter 2, Physical Health Problems and Treatment of the Aged, Barbara Blakeney, a nurse clinician and specialist in geriatric nursing, and Terrence O'Malley, a primary-care internist, explore the major physical health changes that accompany aging and the diagnosable illnesses more commonly found in this population group. In describing both preventive and acute-care treatment, the authors emphasize the importance of a vigorous and optimistic approach to the health care of the aged. Significantly, they demonstrate the complementary contributions of physicians and nurses — the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and medical treatment of the physician on one hand, and the patient education and functional support of the nurse on the other— and thereby illustrate, on a small scale, the benefits of the interdisciplinary approach.
