The diversity of residents in long term care medicine can present unique challenges in diagnosing and caring for patients with various psychiatric conditions. What should physicians keep in mind when caring for younger patients, those with Alzheimer's disease, or patients who have had a stroke at long term care facilities? Dr. Lory Bright-Long, clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at State University of New York Stony Brook and certified medical director, discusses the role of the interdisciplinary team in managing patients with psychiatric conditions.
