This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of U.S.-based community healthcare providers who care for patients with AD, including primary care clinicians, neurologists, geriatricians, geriatric psychologists, psychiatrists, pharmacists, and managed care professionals.
The DETECT Immersive Simulation experience provides up-to-date information on the diagnosis and management of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) targeted to specific specialties. The program uses a case-based, interactive format designed to enhance clinician knowledge and improve their confidence in treating this population.
Upon completion of this activity, attendees should be able to:
- Evaluate the burden of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), including the process of prolonged decline in cognitive function
- Provide an accurate and timely diagnosis of AD to allow for early disease management and/or referral to specialists
- Use cognitive assessments, biomarkers, and imaging in distinguishing between normal aging and cognitive impairment
- Select and use the best therapeutic options for patients with AD based on up-to-date clinical data on established and emerging disease-modifying therapies
- Employ best practices for multidisciplinary care coordination, workflows, and best practices for referral of patients
