Target Audience

This course is recommended for primary care providers, neurologists, geriatricians, psychiatrists, internal medicine providers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, psychologists, social workers and other health care professionals who treat patients with dementia.

Program Description

This conference will address how health care, social service and legal societies can work together in an organized and meaningful way to manage the growing epidemic of dementia. As scientists strive to find pharmacological therapies to eradicate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other neurocognitive diseases, communities must find ways to effectively manage these disorders. The numbers of individuals affected by dementia continues to rise, more sectors of society are affected, and more caregivers are called upon to render assistance. Dementia has the potential to negatively impact many communities as healthcare, government, and personal entities require more resources to deal with a growing number of persons whose cognitive and corporeal condition degenerates in the most unpredictable of ways. Early diagnosis, early planning and effective treatments and social supports are among the key topics we will focus on at this one-day conference.

Goals and Objectives

Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:

  • Implement strategies for early detection and diagnosis of dementia.
  • Optimize current and future pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic therapies for dementia.
  • Advise how individuals with dementia and their caregivers can adopt measures to improve the quality of their lives.
