Perspectives on the Challenges of Alzheimer's Disease

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) continues to be a global health crisis. Progress has been made in our understanding of the science of AD; however, there remains no currently effective treatment to delay the onset of or prevent the disease.

The pathophysiological process of AD begins many years before clinically obvious symptoms appear. In addition, the concept of a pre-symptomatic or preclinical stage of AD is gaining acceptance in the medical community. Discussion of risk factors and careful assessments of individuals 60 or older can improve recognition and help direct treatment approaches.

In this quick CME Outfitters Snack, expert faculty will discuss cutting edge data that can be incorporated to meet the demands of managing complex patients in everyday clinical practice.
