Course Overview

The purpose of the Dementia 2013 medical education conference is to update practitioners on the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer, frontotemporal, Lewy body, vascular and other dementias to promote correct diagnoses and treatments. The various motor, visuospatial, psychiatric and behavioral changes of dementias will be explored through a case-based approach. The proper use of imaging technologies will also be examined.

Who Should Attend

We especially want to encourage neurologists, psychiatrists, family practice and primary care physicians, internists, geriatricians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other allied health professionals who care for patients with dementia to attend.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this program, the clinician/practitioner will be able to:

  • Recognize motor, cognitive, and behavioral signs and symptoms of dementia syndromes;
  • Recognize the differential diagnosis of the presenting signs and symptoms of different dementia syndromes;
  • Distinguish how younger onset dementias represent different sets of treatment challenges and diagnoses;
  • Formulate pharmacological and non-pharmacological management strategies for specific symptoms of dementia;
  • Confirm diagnosis by aptly interpreting neuroimaging data;
  • Determine when to refer a patient to a specialist.
