The DETECT Initiative Podcast-TeleECHO program provides community clinicians with valuable information about the diagnosis and management of mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) through a series of podcast discussions between experts in the field. In addition, listeners will hear directly from a caregiver about living with someone with AD, and how healthcare practitioners can make a difference. The programs are designed to enhance clinician knowledge and improve their confidence in treating this population.
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, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, geriatric psychologists, psychiatrists, pharmacists, and managed care professionals.
Upon the completion of this program, 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 to distinguish 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
