Description

The European Dementia Consensus Network (EDCON) was formed by opinion leaders from the fields of old-age psychiatry and neurology in order to evaluate and improve the clinical management of patients with dementia across the continent.

Summarizing the work of EDCON’s working group on standards in dementia care, this text compares and contrasts the differences in clinical practice and the provision of services throughout Europe, and also examines the various roles involved in multi-disciplinary care of patients with dementia.
