  1. The role of general practice and the primary care team in dementia diagnosis and management.

    Article - En anglais

    General practitioners (GPs) and the primary care team are uniquely situated to play a central role both in the diagnosis and ongoing care of dementia.

    Anecdotal reports and empirical work suggest that GPs face several challenges in fulfilling this role.

    This paper describes the various roles GPs and the primary care team could play in diagnosis and ongoing management.

    It then discusses the legitimate anxieties and difficulties faced in fulfilling these roles.

    The paper concludes with suggestions for how GPs and the primary care team might be supported to maximize their role in dementia diagnosis and management.
