Similarities and Differences between Specialist and Family Medicine Guidelines

Abstract: Two guidelines about diagnosis and treatment of dementia have been published during the last 12 months: one by the German Association for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy (DGPPN) in association with the German Society of Neurology (DGN) and the other by the German College of General Practitioners and Family Physicians (DEGAM). Based on similarities and differences between these two guidelines we formulate demands on joint efforts towards a National Disease Management Guideline for Dementia.
