Geriatric Mental Health Care
Ageing societies are challenged by providing adequate, effective, humane, and cost-efficient services to an increasing number of older individuals suffering from psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders.
Geriatric Mental Health Care aims at improving geriatric psychiatry service provision and treatment by enhancing and disseminating scientific knowledge on the translation of basic research findings from the disciplines of gerontology, ethics, neuroscience, neuropsychology, social science, technology, economy, clinical psychology, nursing, and pharmacology, into geriatric psychiatry services. The journal focuses on the implementation of innovative treatments and state-of-the art guidelines into clinical practice under the conditions of different healthcare systems.
Submissions may cover intervention trials, practice guidelines, cross-sectional studies on the quality and state of geriatric psychiatry services, as well as basic research findings with direct clinical relevance to the treatment of patients suffering from dementia, depression, delirium, anxiety disorders, substance abuse, and psychosis in old age. Additionally, systematic reviews of evidence-based and newly emerging treatment interventions in the field will be considered.
