How Argentina is training their mental health residents to face its Silver Tsunami?

  • Sergio A. Strejilevich (a1), Florencia Vallejos (a2) and Julian Bustin (a2)
Extract

In low- and middle-income countries, there is an increase in the percentage of aging population similar to or greater than that of high-income countries (World Population Ageing 1950–2050, UN, 2001). The emerging health and economical challenges due to these demographic changes will have to be addressed by their health systems. In this context, an adequate training of available human resources in geriatric psychiatry/psychogeriatrics (GP/PG) should be an essential step to meet those challenges.
