Interaction with other health team members in caring for elderly patients

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Over the next several decades, dentists, physicians, nurses, and caregivers will be challenged to provide safe, efficient health care to a burgeoning number of older adults with complex needs. Although each profession will contribute a unique set of skills, none will be able to provide comprehensive care in isolation from the others. As a result, interaction among dentists, physicians, and others will rely on effective communication and collaboration. Ultimately, dentists, physicians, and nurses will serve geriatric patients best when working as well-coordinated health care teams.
