Dementia care faces barriers

Built-in limitations of the U.S. health-care system, such as time and reimbursement constraints, inhibit the ability of primary-care doctors to best meet the needs of dementia patients and their families, according to a new UC Davis study. Published online by the Journal of the Society of General Internal Medicine, the study found a need for better education of and support for families, proactive requests for appropriate treatments and dementia-care teams to help manage more complicated cases. UC Davis psychiatrist Ladson Hinton was the study's principal investigator.
