Late-onset schizophrenia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Given that psychotic symptoms are relatively common in the older adults and can accompany a variety of conditions, correctly identifying the etiology of psychosis in older patients is essential for developing the most effective treatment plan. Here we focus on the identification and management of late-onset schizophrenia and schizophrenia-like psychosis.
