NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Psychiatric Times, a leading online community for mental health professionals, featured a special report on Geriatric Psychiatry. Because clinicians will likely encounter older adults with depression, dementia, Alzheimer disease, OCD, and other psychiatric disorders, this special series focuses on critical aspects of concern to the rising elderly population.
Among the special coverage of Geriatric Psychiatry online in Psychiatric Times:
Consultation/Liaison Psychiatry in Geriatrics: Overcoming Challenges and Finding Solutions: This article summarizes 5 cases from consultation services at several teaching hospitals. These challenging cases illustrate several points for the consultation/liaison psychiatrist to consider in caring for elderly hospitalized patients.
Hoarding in Late Life: Implications for Clinicians: DSM-5 criteria for hoarding disorder necessitate that the hoarding behaviors cause clinically significant impairment in the patient's ability to function.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Late-Life Depression: Advances in our understanding of neurobiology can help inform diagnosis and prognosis in patients with late-life depression.
Psychiatric Times is the country's leading psychiatric publication and regularly publishes content on key issues in mental health.
