Neighborhood linking social capital as a predictor of psychiatric medication prescription in the elderly: A Swedish national cohort study.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Little is known about the association between neighborhood linking social capital and psychiatric medication in the elderly. The present study analyzes whether there is an association between linking social capital (a theoretical concept describing the amount of trust between individuals and societal institutions) and prescription of antipsychotics, anxiolytics, hypnotics/sedatives, antidepressants, or anti-dementia drugs.
