Every 65 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer’s disease, and an estimated 5.7 million Americans are currently living with the disease. To help address its increasing prevalence in our aging society, the Wisconsin Alzheimer’s Institute is sponsoring its 16th Annual Alzheimer’s Disease Update at the Madison Concourse Hotel on November 9.
The goal of this CME-approved conference is to improve the diagnostic and therapeutic skills of physicians and medical staff who work with people living with dementia and their caregivers. Topics include screening for cognitive impairment, optimizing patient and caregiver-centered outcomes in dementia care, culturally tailored approaches to diagnosis and care of older Latino adults, UCLA Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Program, young-onset dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease, and post-operative delirium and cognitive decline.
A pre-conference workshop on diagnosis and treatment of dementia is also being offered November 8.
