June 2006 Author in the Room® Teleconference
 
Author: Christopher Callahan, MD
 
 
Summary Points:
  • Primary care practices have standard protocols to offer a patient with Alzheimer Disease and their caregivers.
  • The quality of care of many geriatric syndromes, including Alzheimer Disease, can be improved by implementing a collaborative care model.
  • Similar to many geriatric syndromes, medication may be useful, but it is not enough. Medications are one part of a package of care.
