Family physicians' perspectives on memory clinics in primary care

Linda Lee, Loretta M Hillier
Neurodegenerative Disease Management 2016, 6 (6): 467-478

AIM: To identify family physicians' perception of the primary care collaborative memory clinic (PCCMC) care model.

METHODS: Physicians with access to a PCCMC completed a survey to assess their satisfaction with various aspects of PCCMC care delivery (n = 78). Interviews were conducted with a purposeful sample of physicians (n = 20) to gather their opinions on the strengths, gaps in care and benefits associated with the PCCMC model.

RESULTS: There was support for this care model in providing timely quality dementia care at a primary care level, making it easier for referring physicians to manage challenging aspects of dementia care.

CONCLUSION: PCCMCs provide a significant opportunity for supporting physicians to manage the care of persons with dementia within primary care practice.
