NICE Guideline NG97 - Dementia: assessment, management and support for people living with dementia and their carers

Specialist clinicians (for the purpose of starting and monitoring treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors and memantine) are those with the appropriate knowledge and skills and include secondary care medical specialists (for example psychiatrists, geriatricians and neurologists) and other healthcare professionals (for example GPs, nurse consultants and advanced nurse practitioners) with specialist expertise in diagnosing and treating Alzheimer's disease.
