Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Neurology Volume 04, Issue 12: Highlights from the 17th Annual Symposium: Comprehensive Approach to Dementia.
The goal of this program is to improve the treatment of dementia and provide better supportive care for patients, caregivers, and families. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Elaborate on the previous and current theories to explain the pathophysiology of Alzheimer disease (AD).
2. Summarize the attempts to develop disease-modifying treatments that target proposed causes of AD.
3. Implement features of a dementia care model that can support the patient and slow or reduce the development of cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms.
4. Advise patients and their families about factors that influence decisions about end-of-life care and the support services available to them.
5. Optimize the balance between emphasis of technologic or medical interventions vs the goals of patients and families.
The original programs were presented by Christopher M. Marano, MD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Division of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, and Patricia (Tia) Powell, MD, Professor of Clinical Epidemiology, Division of Bioethics; Professor of Clinical Psychiatry; Director, Montefiore Einstein Center for Bioethics; and Director, Einstein Cardozo Master of Science in Bioethics, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University, Bronx, NY.
