The Young Onset Dementia Pathway gives recommendations for commissioners and practitioners to create the ideal care pathway for the condition. It was developed by people affected by young onset dementia and the people who work with and support them.

Liaison accreditation FAQs

Do I need to work in both Adult and Old Age settings to meet the requirements of the 2016 Liaison curriculum?

No. The 2016 Liaison Curriculum applies to both General and Old Age Psychiatry trainees, but the emphasis is different. A trainee may mostly see patients under the age of 65, but is expected to have some knowledge of old age conditions such as dementia and delirium.

Do Liaison supervisors have to have Liaison endorsements?

No – Clinical and Education supervisors for Liaison Psychiatry placements don’t have to have endorsement. The local Head of School decides whether they have the skills needed, but a supervisor without an endorsement should be in a Liaison post for a year before supervising higher trainees in Liaison placement.

You can find more information about this in the Speciality Training FAQs.
