clinical pearls to help you manage your geriatric peeps

geropsych pearls

These tidbits are offered for clinicians that find themselves struggling to care for geriatric patients.  They are offered with the assumption that you already know how to treat psychiatric disorders, but desire tips to adjust your current prescribing practices for an older frail population.


If these pearls are helpful, then use them.


Standard disclaimer applies. You must use your own brain.
