Editorial Description

Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging (ALTC) is a peer-reviewed, medical journal that addresses the clinical care and practical issues that affect the treatment of long-term care residents. The aim is to disseminate timely information that can be readily put into practice to improve the care of this growing population. Founded in 1992, ALTC reaches almost 50,000 medical directors, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, psychiatrists, and other allied health professionals monthly. ALTC is an official publication of the American Geriatrics Society and also has a partnership with the American Association for Long Term Care Nursing. Content consists of evidence-based clinical review articles, case reports, clinical experience reports, ethics articles, perspectives, and various other departments prepared by healthcare providers and key opinion leaders serving long-term care. Articles in the publication cover a wide range of topics from numerous specialties, including cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, musculoskeletal disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, pain management, psychiatry, pulmonary medicine, rheumatology, and urology, among others. ALTC is indexed in EMBASE/Excerpta Medica and in the Cumulative Index for Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL).

Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging (ALTC) is dedicated to providing practical clinical information to all healthcare providers serving long-term care residents, a frail population with unique health concerns. This mission is crucial as there is still a paucity of clinical data for elderly individuals, especially those residing in long-term care facilities. In addition, the demand for long-term care services is anticipated to surge in the coming decades; thus, an increasing number of healthcare providers will be caring for long-term care residents. By publishing detailed, timely, practical clinical information, ALTC seeks to help all healthcare providers serving the long-term care community to stay current on the latest clinical information and developments, ensuring their patients receive the highest quality care.

Annals of Long-Term Care: Clinical Care and Aging (USPS#015925; ISSN1524-7929) is published monthly by HMP Communications, 83 General Warren Blvd., Suite 100, Malvern, PA 19355. Copyright © 2011 by HMP Communications.
