Electronic (“E”) Consults for Neuropsychiatric Symptoms in Dementia (NPSD)

Sowmya Iyer, MD, MPH; Philip Choe, DO; J. Lisa Tenover, MD, PhD

American Geriatrics Society Annual Meeting, May 2018, Orlando, FL

This pilot was initiated to ascertain feasibility of phone consultation to make management recommendations for NPSD.  74 Veterans consulted, mean age 80.1 y (range 59-98y), 33% were patients in rural clinics.  Over 7000 miles of travel saved for these Veterans, dementia education provided to all caregivers, and recommendations made regarding pharmacological and behavioral management of dementia.  E-consults for NPSD are possible through non face-to-face methods, and improve access to Geriatric specialists and semi-urgent care that is otherwise not available.
