I set out to re-examine dementia from a different framework — one that takes us beyond "interventions" and "programs" to a proactive, strength-based approach.
As a long-term care geriatrician, it is my core belief that clinicians need to recognize the true value of what we can accomplish together by improving the quality of patient care through reducing avoidable hospitalizations.
OK, so I just figured out why geriatricians are the some of lowest paid physicians in the profession. It's because no one knows who the heck they are! We have proof.
