Psychogeriatric training for senior registrars in geriatric medicine

  • Duncan R. Forsyth (a1)
Extract

Since the late 1960s the number of psychiatrists choosing to specialise in old age psychiatry has increased dramatically (Wattis, 1988) and in 1989 the Royal College of Psychiatrists recognised the specialty's status. Recent recommendations of the Royal Colleges of Physicians and Psychiatrists (Report of a Joint Working Party of the Royal Colleges, 1989) have considerable implications for the continued development of cooperation between psychogeriatricians and geriatricians and for senior registrar (SR) training in both specialties. This study attempts to describe the availability of and attitudes towards training in psychogeriatrics (PG) of geriatric SRs.
