Wednesday, May 31| 3:00-4:00 p.m. | Speaker: Heidi Yount, MD, FAAFP
|Learning Objectives||Goals/Expected Outcomes
||Primary care physicians require education to overcome their commonly cited barriers to the diagnosis and management of AD. Education should be aimed at an improved recognition of the benefits of early diagnosis; the use of office-based cognitive-assessment tools; the management of common behavioral disturbances in AD; the importance of clear communication with patients and caregivers; and guidance for establishing effective connections with relevant community-based, social, and long-term care clinicians.|
||Primary care physicians need education to grasp the benefits of an early AD diagnosis. They specifically require guidance on the use of recommended office-based cognitive assessment tools for at-risk patients.|
