Some evidence suggests that behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) are more pronounced in veterans with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) than in others with dementia. Catherine Travers, Elizabeth Beattie and Elaine Fielding surveyed Australian healthcare professionals to better understand whether PTSD influences the expression of these symptoms in veterans with dementia.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
