Previously, the publication has focused primarily on geriatricians and other physicians who regularly treat geriatric patients. Now, with older adults representing the largest segment of America’s population, the publishers are expanding the scope of coverage to include other health care professionals whose participation figures prominently in the care of older adults, including dietitians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, and occupational therapists. Of course, physicians remain an integral part of the magazine’s reading audience.
“Helping geriatric patients maintain their health and quality of life requires a team of professionals whose expertise and involvement are varied,” explains Publisher Mara Honicker. “The physician certainly leads the team, but we wanted to expand the magazine’s focus to include the other professionals who apply their knowledge and input to the care of older adults. We’re confident that the magazine’s new title clearly reflects this expanded editorial coverage and will appeal to all professionals who make up the geriatric medicine team.”
Today’s Geriatric Medicine is part of a Great Valley Publishing roster of publications with many years of experience informing these professional communities, including Today’s Dietitian and Social Work Today. Great Valley also publishes the noted health information management trade magazine, For The Record, as well as the well-established monthly, Radiology Today.
The first issue featuring the Today’s Geriatric Medicine title will be the May/June issue. Barbara Worthington is the editor of the magazine, which will remain a bimonthly. The magazine’s new website address is www.todaysgeriatricmedicine.com.
