Event Overview
Welcome message:
Despite the substantial progress made in understanding and treating Alzheimer’s disease in recent years, no disease modifying treatments are available such that care is limited to treatment of dementia symptoms and pursuit of the best possible quality of life. During this Medical Crossfire®, expert faculty will engage in a multidisciplinary roundtable discussion that includes a neurologist and a geriatrician. A patient advocate and early-stage patient give voice to the many facets of lifestyle management and future planning.  This activity provides key guidance for diagnosing and treating Alzheimer’s disease and promoting the collaborative care between primary care providers, geriatricians, neurologists and psychiatrists who not only have the patients’ needs at heart, but include caregivers as a member of the multidisciplinary team, steadfastly involved in decision-making processes.

This activity is directed to primary care providers, neurologists, geriatric specialists, and psychiatrists who treat patients with Alzheimer’s Disease. Nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, researchers, and other healthcare professionals interested in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

Describe neurodegenerative changes that are considered the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease (AD)

Describe screening and diagnostic tools for the early identification of individuals with AD

Describe emerging biomarkers for earlier and more accurate diagnosis

Select appropriate therapy for patients with AD to slow disease progression and improve patient and caregiver quality of life (QoL)

Describe lifestyle modifications that can improve QoL for patients and caregivers
