Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Internal Medicine Volume 60, Issue 07: Cognitive Impairment/Palliative Care.
The goals of this program are to improve the assessment and treatment of cognitive impairment and the practice of palliative care. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Differentiate mild cognitive impairment (MCI) from normal aging and dementia.
2. Prescribe medication to slow progression to dementia in a patient diagnosed with MCI.
3. Advise patients on nonpharmacologic interventions to prevent or slow cognitive decline.
4. Implement palliative care for patients with life-threatening illnesses.
5. Counsel patients with a terminal illness and their families about prognosis and treatment options.
The original programs were presented by Jeffrey Wallace, MD, MPH, Professor and Director of Clinical Geriatrics, University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, Denver, and Robert M. Arnold, MD, Professor of Medicine; Chief, Section of Palliative Care and Medical Ethics; Assistant Director, Institute to Enhance Palliative Care; Director, Institute for Doctor-Patient Communication; and Leo H. Criep Chair in Patient Care, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pittsburgh, PA.
