Dr Anwar and Dr Lee hope to address some of the common mental health issues faced by elderly patients including delirium, depression and dementia. These are complex topics which are often misunderstood and can present significant challenges for those involved in their care. Drs Anwar and Lee hope that this interactive session will provide practical information to enhance your understanding and improve your practice.
