Role and responsibility of the speciality tutor: Comparison between two regions in old age psychiatry and suggestions for the future

  • Jane Garner (a1) and Yong Lock Ong (a2)
Abstract
Aims and method

In order to identify the role and responsibility of the speciality tutor, the tutors' post in old age psychiatry was compared across two regions.

Results

The role was narrow; but different in the two regions depending on training programmes.

Clinical implications

Tutors in all faculties should have an expanded and standardised job description, separate from the role of the regional representative, in order to strengthen the input of the specialisms to training at all levels.
