Accreditation Check:
What are neurodegenerative dementias and why is it important to be able to identify different dementia subtypes? This course answers these questions and prepares participants to accurately recognize different dementias and ultimately provide superior therapeutic management of dementia for patients. The course begins by overviewing the basic concepts needed for diagnosis of neurodegenerative dementias, as well as the clinical assessment for dementia. The course also provides a review of basic brain anatomy and function, and explores normal and abnormal findings on structural (MRI) and functional (PET) brain scans. The course concludes by describing specific patient case examples and discussing the implications of neurodegenerative dementia on continuing therapeutic care.
