Program Description

Half or more of Americans with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may not have received an appropriate diagnosis, particularly in cases that fall along the mild-to-moderate continuum. Although emerging evidence and an evolving understanding of AD progression have been incorporated into a 2011 update of diagnostic guidelines, identifying AD and distinguishing it from other disorders remain challenging, as in this case of a 58-year-old woman who complains of “memory issues.”

Intended Audience

Neurologists and other clinicians who manage the care of patients with possible Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.

Educational Objectives

After taking part in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the new construct for understanding, diagnosing, and treating Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
  • Apply contemporary approaches to the diagnosis of AD
  • Identify the role of AD biomarkers in preclinical and clinical settings
