Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Psychogeriatric assessment depends upon a multidisciplinary approach to psychiatric morbidity in the elderly. The assessment correlates the psychological, physical and social factors that contribute towards the psychiatric presentation in each individual case. Applied to the problem of dementia, such an approach enables accurate diagnosis, rationalization of treatment, and planning of management, future care and placement.
