Memory Disorder Clinic

 

Boston Medical Center’s Section of Geriatrics will be implementing a Memory Disorder Clinic  with the goal of conducting neuropsychiatric testing of both English and non-English speaking patients. After testing, patients will be referred to the Department of Neurology for follow-up as appropriate. Some outcomes of this study will be caregiver satisfaction, the impact of the clinic on other BMC clinics, provider satisfaction, and wait times for clinical services. Ultimately, this research aims to identify key components that contribute to feasibility, sustainability, acceptability and satisfaction from providers, patients, and caregivers. CIIS is assisting in conducting a formative evaluation of the Memory Disorder Clinic to examine both the implementation process and some clinical outcomes.
