Abstract

Previous research has indicated that passive distribution of educational material by itself has little impact on physician behavior. In this paper, a collaborative care management program for the treatment and management of dementia in primary care (The PREVENT Study) is described. The essential components of the integrated program are: 1) a comprehensive screening and diagnosis protocol; 2) a multidisciplinary team approach coordinated by a geriatric advance practice nurse; and 3) a proactive longitudinal tracking system. The key role of the geriatric nurse practitioner is emphasized. While the clinical trial is still on-going, we can report that the intervention has been well received by primary care physicians, patients and their families.
