Farber, Seymour M.; And Others
The introduction to this Technical Committee Report reviews the health status of the older population and examines major disease entities where health maintenance and promotion can play a role. Part One, "Health Maintenance and Health Promotion Services," discusses the physical and social environments, indicators of change in physical and mental health in late life, rehabilitation, mental health, dental health, needed linkages in health maintenance and promotion services, and reimbursement for preventive/health maintenance and promotion costs for the elderly. Part Two, "Behavioral Issues in Health Maintenance and Health Promotion," examines the role of nutrition, stress, alcohol- and drug-related problems of the elderly, self-care and mutual help, older Americans as resources in health maintenance, and health education. Part Three, "Special Issues in Health Maintenance and Health Promotion," focuses on special elderly populations (rural, minorities, and women) and discusses research on health maintenance and promotion. Key findings and recommendations are presented in the accompanying executive summary of this report. (NRB)
