Education in geriatric medicine for community hospital staff
O’Hanlon and Liston (2010) used a questionnaire to assess the provision of education in geriatric medicine among community hospital staff. While not specific to dementia, the results indicated that staff found dementia and challenging behaviour to be one of the most difficult areas of their practice. The authors conclude that geriatricians have little input to education in community hospitals and that staff would value regular, structured input.
