Rethinking aging : growing old and living well in an overtreated society / Nortin M. Hadler.
Hadler, Nortin M.
Chapel Hill : University of North Carolina Press, c2011.
xvi, 250 p. : ill. ; 25 cm.
Over the past decade, Hadler has established himself as a leading voice among those who approach the menu of health-care choices with informed skepticism. Only the rigorous demonstration of efficacy is adequate reassurance of a treatment's value, he argues; if it cannot be shown that a particular treatment will benefit the patient, one should proceed with caution. In Rethinking Aging, Hadler offers a doctor's perspective on the medical literature as well as his long clinical experience to help readers assess their health-care options and make informed medical choices in the last decades of life.
