Overview

Neurocognitive Disorders in Geriatric Psychiatry

Focus, APA’s clinical review journal, is designed as a personal study resource to help practicing psychiatrists keep abreast of significant advances in the field, with particular attention to clinical practice. The goals of Focus are to disseminate up-to-date information, facilitate lifelong learning study skills, support maintenance of certification, and provide opportunity for self-assessment in order to improve patient care. Each issue, prepared by distinguished faculty who are recognized leaders in their fields, incorporates a CME component. The material can be used effectively by establishing a regular schedule of study.
