Overview

Alzheimer’s disease is a devastating and progressive illness without any known prevention, cure, or method to reverse this disease. Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. Only 45% of patients with Alzheimer’s disease or their caregivers will actually be told of their diagnosis. Earlier diagnosis will enable initiation of interventions that may slow the disease course. Biomarkers and several imaging modalities are now available to help achieve a definitive diagnosis. In this CME activity, leading clinicians will discuss the latest evidence-based strategies for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, management strategies for pre-symptomatic and mild Alzheimer’s disease, and the latest safety and efficacy data for new and emerging agents for treating Alzheimer’s disease.

Target Audience

The intended audience for the activity is primary care providers, neurologists, gerontologists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients with Alzheimer’s disease.

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of the video series, participants should be better able to:

  • Evaluate evidence-based strategies for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Review the latest data of the pathophysiology and management strategies for pre-symptomatic and mild Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Evaluate the latest safety and efficacy data for new and emerging agents for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
