Abstract

The authors stipulate that more attention should be devoted to the issues of psychogeriatry both in the curriculum of undergraduate medical studies and in the postgraduate training of family doctors. They argue that such changes are needed in view of the ageing of the population in Poland and the modification of the health care model in our country.
