Target Audience

This course is recommended for primary care providers, neurologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other health care professionals who treat patients with neurological disorders.

Program Description

The brain is vulnerable to assault by conditions both internal and external to our bodies, which can cause dementia. While there may be some overlap, these disorders often have characteristic presentations that differ from Alzheimer’s disease. Recognizing the differences in signs and symptoms, and knowing how to approach diagnosis can eventually lead to treatments that may ease or even reverse symptoms. This course is aimed at examining a few of the more common disorders that can injure the brain, as well as potential interventions to forestall damage.

  • Explain the effect of repetitive head trauma on the brain;
  • Recognize how illness in the body can assail the brain;
  • Employ strategies to protect and repair the brain.
