May 23, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm MST
This dynamic one-day program will help you more effectively understand and intervene with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias that affect your geriatric patients. In an energetic and uplifting style, Dr. Steinberg will introduce you to a recipe of what works and what doesn’t with and for older adult patients and their care providers. Dr. Steinberg will address the cognitive implications of the aging process in general, its effects on individual patients, and the pathological changes and functional manifestations specific to Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. Walk away with the tools necessary to differentiate the diagnostic criteria for various types of dementias seen in older adults, including Alzheimer’s disease, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Fronto-Temporal Dementia, and Lewy Body Dementia. You will return to your practice better able to participate in interdisciplinary approaches in evaluation and treating Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers.
