Population aging is a growing challenge worldwide. As such, new models of provision, organization, and allocation of resources, particularly in healthcare, are needed. As the self-care and long-term care needs of this age group become more prevalent, the importance of improved health services and effective health management strategies are apparent. This title provides emerging research exploring the challenges and opportunities for the development and management of health systems and organizations in relation to people aged 65 and over. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as emotional wellness, long-term care, and professional caregiving, this book is ideally designed for health technicians, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, hospital administrators, clinical directors, laboratory technicians, medical professionals, researchers, and students.
