Editorial Description

Clinical Geriatrics is an official peer-reviewed clinical review journal of the American Geriatrics Society that focuses on both the clinical and practical issues related to the care and management of the older community-dwelling patient. The Journal’s readership comprises nearly 50,000 office-based primary care physicians, hospital-based physicians, geriatricians, psychiatrists, and other healthcare providers treating the older patient. Clinical content consists of evidence-based, clinical review articles, case reports, and various departments prepared by experts in the field that cover a wide range of areas, including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, musculoskeletal disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pain management, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, and urology, among others. Many articles review data related to specific clinical differences found in geriatric patients, helping to accurately diagnose and treat this rapidly expanding patient population.

Clinical Geriatrics was established in 1993 and is published monthly.

The Journal is indexed in EMBASE/Excerpta Medica and in the Cumulative Index for Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL).
