Abstract

In recent years, due to demographic trends, the rapidly growing branch of clinical psychiatry named geriatric psychiatry has become a very important field. Among the various issues with which geriatric psychiatry deals are the legal problems of elderly patients with mental disorders. These problems are at present on the agendas of different national and international forums — of psychiatry as well as of gerontology and geriatrics.
