Die siekteprofiel van 'n geriatriese buitepasiënt-afdeling

C.L. Wicht, H Kamfer

Abstract


A series of 120 outpatients over the age of 75 years were assessed on a clinical, functional and social basis. The multiplicity of pathology, decrease in functional ability and social background are emphasized. This comprehensive approach in the evaluation of the elderly sick was found to be of great value both in the clinic and in aftercare services.
