Continuing educational forum in psychogeriatrics for professional carers in the community

  • E. Cybulska (a1)
Extract

It has been common knowledge that professional carers in the community, institutions, and perhaps also in hospitals lack appropriate training in issues related to mental health problems in the elderly. Many crises in the community appear to be precipitated not so much by the gravity of the problems the elderly pose, but by panic or the fear of the unknown among the carers. Arie et al (1985) postulate that the joint teaching of different professions can be a fruitful training for subsequent team work, while Beynon & Croker (1983) reported that shared tutorials in geriatrics at the Middlesex Hospital in London were very successful. The negative features of institutionalised care can be counteracted through training and management (Wilkin et al, 1985).
