Abstract

Personality disorder traits can be quite problematic in older adult patients and the effects of these traits can sometimes present as risks that the professionals working in this field must be confident in managing. It is therefore crucial that information around the presentation and management of these disorders in the older adult psychiatry patient cohort is available. Here, the authors summarise current knowledge regarding the assessment and management of personality disorders in the older adult population, based on a literature search.
