Early and accurate diagnosis of dementia is an important component of a comprehensive plan to detect, diagnose, and
manage the disease. However, dementia remains underdetected and suboptimally managed in primary and secondary care environments.
These include gaps regarding new insights into the pathogenesis of dementia-related disorders, role of genetics, evidence supporting
preventive interventions, and efficacy of treatments as well as how to weigh those factors in clinical practice decisions and counsel
patients and their family.
This series presents the current state-of-the-art on detecting, diagnosing, and managing dementia. Through a knowledgeable approach to diagnosis of dementia and use of current therapeutic options, providers will be able to incorporate the most up-to-date research into their clinical practice and, thus, optimize patient outcomes.
Participants attending all programs will find the key concepts reinforced from session to session, but additional topics unique to each location will also be presented.
The series will benefit neurologists, psychiatrists, family practice and primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other allied health care professionals who treat patients with dementia.
After completing this activity, participants will be able to do the following:
- Identify research advances relating to diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic strategies in Alzheimer disease.
- Discuss research advances for other dementia syndromes: Parkinsonian disorders, frontotemporal lobar degeneration, white matter diseases, autoimmune dementias and cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
- Identify the present strategies for biomarker measurement in dementia and possible limitations to these measurements.
- Discuss treatment strategies for symptomatic issues related to dementia including agitation, depression, anxiety, sleep disruption, hallucination, and gait/balance.
- Compare the pros, cons, and costs associated with various imaging modes in dementia including MRI, FDG-PET, and amyloid imaging.
- Discuss implications of sports head injuries and concussion screening that can be used in the setting of organized sports.
- Summarize research on transcranial stimulation, deep brain stimulation, and potential prevention strategies.
