The treatment landscape for early Alzheimer’s disease is evolving in front of us. As long-awaited pharmaceuticals become available, understanding the disposition of older adults toward early detection of dementia – knowledge of symptoms, openness to testing, and receptivity to treatment – will be crucial. Join us to learn real patient perspectives on the current state of cognitive assessments and dementia prevention in primary care today. This webinar will present key findings from a representative survey of 1,000 U.S. adults age 65 and older, capturing their experiences and sentiments around cognitive assessments. Survey participants responded to questions regarding preferred timing of identifying a cognitive impairment, openness to lifestyle and pharmaceutical intervention, and personal experiences with their PCPs.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:
Discover the benefits of early detection of dementia on patient care and the implications of projected patient demand for treatment for primary care practices and health systems
Employ best practices for supporting patients through intervention options
Produce strategies for closing current cognitive care gaps
