This book offers a comprehensive view of ethical, medicolegal, and forensic issues common to aging psychiatric patients. Written by experts in the field, this volume includes assessments of each patient's capacity to make decisions, live independently, manage finances, drive a vehicle, have sexual relations, and a wide array of other topics in the context of ethics and the law. The text also discusses guardianship and care for patients who are no longer fit to handle their own care and the ethical dilemmas associated with these challenges. Finally, the text covers aging adults in the criminal justice system from an epidemiological perspective--a problem that is steadily increasing in many nations, including the United States. Psychiatric Ethics in Late-Life Patients is an excellent resource for all physicians navigating legal and ethical scenarios involving aging patients, including general, geriatric, and forensic psychiatrists, geriatricians, primary care providers, geriatric nurses, social workers, public health officials, and all others
